Last week I realized the Valentine’s Day party for my son’s class was NEXT Friday. What? We just celebrated Christmas, didn’t we? How is it time to plan for Valentine’s Day??
This year instead of making a craft that the kids will take home and throw away in a week, we are making Valentine’s Day cards and place mats for Meals on Wheels– an organization that delivers meals to people who need support to live independently– often times the elderly or people with disabilities.
#1 Showering You With Love! Who knew you could use cupcake liners for so many crafts? This is one I’m showing as an option for our Meals on Wheels cards. Technically this isn’t a Valentine’s Day card, but I think it will work great!
How adorable is this. Cut, glue and draw some legs!
#3. Love Birds
Again, this isn’t a Valentine’s Day card, but what kind of bird lover would I be if I didn’t show you this one? It is for sure an option for our service project!
#4 I am loving how cheerful these Heart Flowers are! You wouldn’t need the sticks– just draw the stem on a card.
#6 I love how this heart string card incorporates colors other than red and pink!
#7 Nifty Mom has highlighted this super cute heart tree. She also has a PDF of the tree and the words at the top if you don’t want to make it yourself!
#8 I couldn’t get to the resource for these two, but I love how simple and pretty they are!
#10 This adorable pop up card is a tiny bit more complicated, but I think we can handle it!
It will be hard to pick just a few for the kids to make for Meals on Wheels!
