I am all about classroom parties! I am that mom that totally gets into it and wants to be a part of all of them for each of her kids. For my 3rd grade son’s Valentine’s Day party I wanted to do something fun for him and that he would love. Him being a complete and total boy, I knew he would absolutely love, love, love a comic book theme and what goes awesome with a comic book theme? Why, finger lasers of course! That my friends is how I came up with this freaking cute Valentine’s Day finger laser cards printable!

The inspiration for these came while wandering around Target and stalking the clearance sections. I found these four packs of finger lasers on clearance and just knew these would make a great Valentine’s Day handout for one of my boys.

Then the fun began. I tried creating numerous cards to go with these but none of them really grabbed me as being the perfect fit for the finger lasers. That is until I made these comic book themed cards. I mean after all, don’t comic book villains and lasers often go hand in hand? Once i settled on the design I was then able to get the cards printed up, I cut them out, punched holes in them and took some twine and tide on the finger lasers. These cards would also work great with glow sticks or mini flashlights if you can’t find finger lasers.

I’m sure these Classroom Valentine’s Day Card Gift Idea – Watercolor Art sets will be a hit with the kids and the parents.

Since I’m in the Chicago suburbs our kids spend a lot of time cooped up during the winter months due to all of the cold and snow. It’s always important to have things on hand that can help stave off the boredom of a cold, gray and snowy day. My kids love being able to make crafts or create art projects and so do most kids. That’s why I thought the idea of watercolor sets would be fun!

Each set comes with a paintbrush and the adorable Valentine’s Day card I created fits nicely over it. There are numerous places you can get watercolor sets for less than a dollar.

Star Wars Valentine’s Day Printable Cards

Star Wars Valentine's Day Printable Cards

 

 

 

Do you have a young Jedi or Padawan in your house? (See how I went all Jedi Master there?) Then these are the Valentine’s Day cards for you! These Star Wars Valentine’s Day Printable Cards are a great option for your lightsaber wielding, one with the force child.

Star Wars Valentine's Day Printable Cards

I have created these cards in three fun Star Wars themed designs. Each one with a classic Star Wars character and a fun Valentine’s Day themed line on them. Each card has a blank line for your child to write out their name and the recipient’s name as well. These can be printed out and cut out and left as is and used as a perfect sized bookmark. That really keeps the cost down! If you want to though you can punch wholes along the top or side and add a glow stick. I figured those were the one thing you could do inexpensively that actually kind of reminds me of a lightsaber. You can usually find packages of 7-10 at the dollar store so still a relatively inexpensive and food free option for class parties.

Star Wars Valentine's Day Printable Cards

To download your own set of these and print them off for this weeks class parties just click on the link below. Then all you need to do is print cut and decide if you are going with really easy bookmarks or grab your whole punch, punch some whole and add some glow sticks.

Valentine's Day Glow Stick Printable

Are your kids in a school district that no longer allows food treats at class parties? My kids are and I do miss being able to send treats but I understand why we can’t. With this though we end up with a ton of pencils at very single class party throughout the year. Pencils are inexpensive and you can always find themed ones that cover any holiday or special occasion. While I get that pencils are useful bringing home a bag of various pencils is not very exciting for the kids. So what do kids like? Mine personally love glow sticks. So I made these adorable and oh so easy to use Valentine’s Day Glow Stick Printable hearts.

 Valentine's Day Glow Stick Printable

You can snag cheap packages of glow stick bracelets at your local dollar stores. They usually have them in the toy or party supply areas and come in a variety of colors and 5-10 in a package.

 Valentine's Day Glow Stick Printable

To make these Valentine’s Day cards just download and print the below printable. Then cut each of the hearts out. Using a standard whole punch make holes on the left and right sides of the hearts. These holes should be the perfect size to hold the glow sticks in place. Carefully, slide the glow stick through the wholes and you are ready to go. The kids can write their names on the back so that their friends know just who they are from.

Happily Ever After Printable

by Jennifer Wieland
Happily Ever After Printable

I love a good love story. I sob at the end of a romantic movie when the guy gets the girl. I get teary eyed when I watch a viral marriage proposal on the internet. I read romance novels like they are going out of style. Basically, I am one hopeless romantic! That’s not a bad thing. Especially when Valentine’s Day the most romantic day of the year is right around corner. In honor of all of the love, romance, flowers, chocolates, candlelit dinners and bow chicka wow wow I decided I wanted to make a Happily Ever After Printable!

This Happily Ever After Printable is a tribute to every classic fairytale. I wanted to create something that looked like an aged page from an old world story about princesses, their handsome princes and nefarious plots. **sigh** I decided to go for an antiqued or aged page from a book look. As if you had just opened the story and were about to start reading a glorious tale complete with over the top, elaborate fonts. I think I succeeded in my goals for a romantic, wistful print.

Happily Ever After Printable

 

For this Valentine’s Day or to add a romantic touch to any room in your house. All you have to do is download the printable and print it off. Pop it into the frame of your choice and there you have it, a lovely piece of art for your home or a romantic gift ready to be bestowed upon your fair maiden or brave knight.

Play-Doh Valentine’s Day Printable

by Jennifer Wieland
Play-Doh Valentine

 

I have a small confession to make. My daughter is a child with a severe Play-Doh obsession. She rolls it out molds, uses all of the kits and tools she has on it. She even covers herself in it. Nope, you did not read that wrong. She will roll it flat and cover parts of her face or body with it. We have no idea why she does these things. If you ask her why she will tell you it’s because she LOVES Play-Doh and it’s fun. That’s all the answer we can ever wrangle out of the child.

So, why am I telling you about how much stranger one of my children is than I already have? Well, you see since she has this great love of Play-Doh, I decided she needed to share that love with her classmates for Valentine’s Day. She was over the moon excited about this whole idea. I set to work on designing the actual Valentine piece. I decided to go with a bag topper. That way I could also include a small cookie cutter for each of her friends with the Play-Doh.

Play-Doh Valentine Supply List

The supplies are listed in the photo above. To assemble you will need to cut out the Play-Doh Valentine Printable, which can be found below. Fold the Valentine in half lengthwise and fill in the to and form field on the back. Place one can of Play-Doh and one cookie cutter into a baggie and seal. Take the folded Valentine and place the baggie in between both sides to just below the seal on the baggie. Staple each end lengthwise.

*Note on cost: Usually I can find plastic cookie cutters for my daughter at the dollar store with 5 or so in the package. I was not able to for these though and found these mini Wilton sets at JoAnn for $3.29/each. Pair that with the tons of coupons out there (they take competitor’s too) and these end up being cheap. The party size Play-Doh comes in bags of 15 or tubes of 10. I was able to get a bag for $5.99 at Target and a tube at Big Lots for $4.00. I printed this using my HP Envy Printer and card stock. Don’t have a printer don’t worry you can get them printed at your local office supply store. 

Play-Doh Valentine

I think they came out really cute and my daughter is so excited for her class party now. Since we are no longer able to have food treats at parties in our school district this makes a nice alternative to the ton of themed pencils we usually end up with. Now here’s the free printable…

Tulle Heart Wreath

by Jennifer Wieland
Tulle Heart Wreath

 

 

 

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and this year I decided to decorate some for it. I don’t usually put up any Valentine’s decorations at all. Honestly, the reason behind that is that I am usually a late Christmas decoration remover. What does that mean? It means that at the end of January I am usually, finally getting around to putting away the Christmas stuff. Since we have bitter cold here in Chicago though and more coming I decided to go ahead and get the old stuff down and get some Valentine’s decorations made and up.

I spent some time yesterday making an utterly adorable tulle heart wreath. It was very easy to make. My daughter kept oohing and aahing over it and has laid claim to it to hang on her bedroom door. I caved and told her she could have it to decorate her door with so I guess I actually need to make more Valentine’s Day decorations for the main rooms of the house now.

Tulle Heart Wreath

This project only needs a handful of items that can be easily found at any craft store and comes together quite easily.

 Tulle Heart Wreath

To make the wreath you will need:
1 12″ styrofoam heart wreath
3-5 spools of 3″ wide tulle in the colors of your choice (I used 3 shades of pink)
1 decorative heart ornament (I used a pink glitter foam one)
decorative ribbon or chord
scissors
ruler
hot glue & glue gun

Select the colors of tulle that you want to use and then cut them into 10″ long pieces. Tie each piece onto the wreath leaving the knotted part on the outside. Be sure to keep the knots fairly even when working. You will want to slide the tulle together as you are working so that it appears that the pieces are overlapping. Attach your ribbon or chord in the desired length using hot glue to the back so you can hang the wreath. Attach the heart ornament from it’s string to the back using hot glue.

 

You can see this and other pink projects on the blog Pink Heels Pink Truck!
