It’s hard to believe we’re almost into February and soon we will be helping our kiddos fill out class valentines! I’ve got a simple teacher valentine idea that we did for my son’s preschool teachers last year, and it was a big hit! When I was a teacher I always loved handmade notes from students, and this is a easy one for little ones, and can be adapted with a more personal message for older kids.
- Patterned wrapping paper or scrapbook paper
- Marker (I used a chalk marker)
- Wrapped candy (because there is gluing involved)
- Cutting tool and tape
The first step is to cut the card stock. I’ve got a handy paper cutter that I love! Easy, straight cuts everytime and it saves me a lot of time.
Then cut the backing. It’s not an exact science, just make sure it’s a little bigger than the cardstock. I had some heart wrapping paper that I used, but scrapbook paper would also work.
Then glue it down. I love my Tombo double-side tape roller, and it’s easy for the kids to use as well.
Center and you’re done with the hard part!
I used a hot glue gun to glue on the chocolate candy first, then my son could write around it.
And then your kiddos can write their personal message. Super easy to put together for all you busy mamas out there!
And what’s sweeter than a handwritten note with a sweet treat?
