This year I am Aubrey’s home room mom!! I was so excited to be apart of his class this year and coming up with little fun things for all the cute little kindergartners to do. So for his Valentine’s Party this year I have some fun crafts, a game, and maybe some homemade play dough planned. BUT to Aubrey the most important thing is passing out his Valentine’s Day Cards. I didn’t want to just run to the store this year and grab a box (not that there is anything wrong with that, I have done it every year until this one!) so I decided to make a fun little “You Color My World” Valentine Card. This also gave me a great excuse to use my heart shaped crayons! I personally like these better than regular crayons, so much more fun! ;)
My kids had a blast helping me with the crayons! I mean what kid doesn’t love it when you say, “here break up this pile of crayons” right? Although I’m sure this will come back to bite me later on when my kids randomly start breaking up all their crayons I guess I will take blame for that one! ; ) And Valentine’s isn’t Valentine’s without some cheesy sayings right? So here are your cheesy printables ; ) Are you ready to make some?? All the details are below!
– You Color My World Printable in Pink (download here) or Aqua (download here)
– Wilton’s 3″x4″ Treat Bags (I got mine at Walmart)
– Cardstock & Inkjet Printer
– Paper Cutter or Scissors
– Crayon Hearts (tutorial here)
Now you just need to print out and cut your Valentine Cards. These are already sized to what you need for the 3″x4″ plastic bags, so just download from the link above and print it straight out as is. You can either use a paper cutter or scissors, it’s up to you. And have your crayon hearts ready to go!
Then just put your crayon hearts into your treat bags, fold your printable in half, and staple over the top of your bag! If you want to get really fancy, you can score your cardstock before folding it to make sure it’s a perfect fold. I have a tutorial on how to do that and it’s with things you have around your house! You can find it HERE.
Now you have some cute little handmade Valentine’s Cards that the kids are going to love!!
