My son is in first grade and his classroom is going to be having a Valentine’s Day party soon. It’s a traditional affair where the kids will hand out valentines to all of their fellow students and eat some sweet treats, probably do some arts and crafts too. He’s really excited to show all of his friends how much he loves them, and I thought it would be fun to make something, instead of buying the paper print outs you’d find at the store. We came up with an idea to turn heart shaped suckers into flowers. It was a lot of fun making these and they turned out so cute! And it was so easy, my son could help with every step!
We ordered heart-shaped tags for the petals, oval-shaped tags for the leaves with his message on them, and small circle labels with heart charms and his school picture. To make each flower, we punched a hole at the bottom of the heart petals, then folded each one in half.
Next, we slid the hearts onto the sucker sticks, and then the ovals. We finished each one off by placing the circle label onto the sucker.
We made over thirty of them, and it took a little over an hour. He is very excited to hand these out in a few weeks, and I cant want to hear about how happy all his little friends will be when they receive them!
