We announced that we were adding two new contributors – today we’re happy to introduce you to our second, Janssen!
Hi, I’m Janssen from Everyday Reading, and I live in North Carolina with my husband and our two little girls (with a third daughter due in a few weeks). My favorite thing in the world is reading books on the couch, preferably with a snack. When I’m not reading, I love to cook, go on adventures with my family (we just returned from living in London for three months), and trying new restaurants. I’m thrilled to be sharing some of our favorite simple projects with you here at Cardstore!
Now that my oldest daughter is four and a half, she is all about holidays.
Last year, when we made little Valentine’s Day gifts for her preschool classmates, she asked about ten times a day—for a week—if it was the day to give them out to her friends.
I love this simple Valentine’s gift because it’s inexpensive, fun, and also candy-free (that may be less of a selling point for a child, but as a mom who gets to deal with children hopped up on sugar for the rest of the day, it’s a big plus for me).
Here’s how to make your own, candy-free kids Valentine!
- printer stocked with paper
- free “Blowing You a Kiss” printable labels
- glue stick
- bottles of bubbles
Download the free “Blowing You a Kiss” labels and print them out. Then, remove the original labels from the bottles of bubbles.
Take a photo of your child blowing a kiss (warning: if your child is young, the first attempts may be surprisingly hilarious!).
Upload the photo onto your computer and print it out. I printed a bunch of small ones up on a page. (tip: these labels work great without photos, too!)
Glue the photos of your child onto the label (or let your child do it!). Cut out your labels and glue them onto the bottles of bubbles.
That’s it! You’re all done and you have a sugar-free treat for your child to share with their friends.
Happy Valentine’s Day
