It’s that time of year, when all moms are required to get super crafty to come up with some sort of a fun classroom Valentine for the kiddos to hand out at school.
Honestly, in years past I’ve been one of those moms who swings by the store the night before the party and stays up writing names on a few dozen Valentine cards for the kids to give away the next morning. Good times y’all.
Well this year, my son is BEYOND excited for his Kindergarten Friendship Party so I knew it was time to kick it into high gear. He lives and breathes LEGO so I decided to go with candy bricks and a fun saying. Scroll to the bottom to get the free printable if you decide to make these at home.
Star with fun brick candies. We got ours from a local toy and candy shop here in town, but you can order bags of them on Amazon if you don’t have a local toy shop that sells them!
What my kids LOVE about these brick candies, is that you can actually build with them. They play with them, and THEN eat them. Best combination ever in their minds.
This was really easy to make, I was able to make all 18 that I needed for my son’s class while watching an episode of the Office on Netflix. Definitely went faster than I was expecting.
Cut out the printable from below and get ready to start stapling them to the baggies. After you’ve put a few bricks in a snack size zip loc bag, push all the air out of the bag and staple the Valentine greeting to the front and back.
