The first project was a Jolly Lolly from the Family Fun website. I made lots of mustaches and kissing lips out of craft foam for the kiddos to choose from. Of course, there were black, brown and blonde mustaches along with bright red, pink and fuschia lips for all tastes. I had them all cut out with the holes punched so the kids just chose the "mask" and slid it onto a lollipop stick. Then, I printed mailing labels, one for each child, that said, "Happy Valentine's Day! Love, (insert name here)" That also made it easy to tell who had made the craft and who hadn't based on whose names were still left on the sheet of labels.
Next, the kids made these little Candy Airplanes, also from Family Fun. I bought cheap valentines stickers for the kids to use to decorate the stick of gum. Then, they assembled the biplane with help from the parents and aides at the party. I had the candy and rubberband in individual baggies for each child. Once they built the plane, they put it back in the baggie and affixed another mailing label that I printed to say, "Valentine, you make my heart soar!" with little biplane cliparts on each side.
The kids all seemed like they had lots of fun making these cute valentines to take home and give to parents, siblings, grandparents, whoever. Thanks for stopping by!
