Craft Roundup: Class Valentine Projects are DIY Treats
Have the kids whip up something more creative to pass out to friends: An owl candy box, message in a bottle, cupcake liner award or super hero stick puppet
Does someone in your family have a Valentine's Day classroom party coming up in the next few weeks? Get those little southeast Michigan love bugs of yours crafting early – and have them hand out nifty mementos with lots of heart (isn't that always the case with stuff that's handmade, vs. the store-bought fare?). This week's roundup showcases a few clever ideas for new takes on valentine classics.
If your kids are giving a box of chocolates or treats to a friend or family member, why not let them decorate it to make it theirs? This darling idea from Naughty Secretary Club features an ever-cool felt owl – with flowered hearts for eyes.
Everyone's a winner on Valentine's Day! Make your small crafters their very own award to show off on Feb. 14 with this Urban Comfort tutorial.
Here's a totally different take on classroom valentines: puppets! And super hero puppets, at that. Mom blogger Tonya Stabb shows you how on Create-Celebrate-Explore.
