Classroom Valentines

Valentine's Day is rapidly approaching and I pinned about 70 eleven different cards TOF and I could make for his class.

My favorite were these adorable Shrinky Dinks keychains!

But I got to thinking, that's an awful lot of coloring for a boy who sometimes has the attention span
 . . . was that a squirrel? Hehe, I guess he gets it from me!

Yeah, so that was too much work to make for his entire classroom of 20. Maybe we'll just make a few for family.

I had a few other ideas up my sleeve on my Pinterest board, so I asked TOF to choose a project.

In true boy fashion, he chose bouncy balls. (I saw similar bouncy balls in the Valentine section at Target for $3 a 20 pack!)


I wasn't too crazy about the card attached and I didn't have any card stock on hand. So I played around in Print Artist and came up with this tag.

I printed them out on plain copier paper, cut to 3 1/2 X 5 inches and folded in half. We'll add a 2 1/2 X 6 1/2 inch piece of red construction paper in the middle before we staple the tag to the snack size Ziploc bags. And of course he'll add his name in his best penmanship.

Feel free to grab that image and make your own!

Love the idea of bouncy balls for Valentine's Day. Kids get too much candy! And, yes, your tags are cuter.
