You know what I love the most about it? It’s NOT candy!
I got this idea for the boys’ Valentines Day cards via Pinterest and put my own little spin on it. I was looking for something fun and not candy-related as their school is a ‘healthy choices” school (translation: don’t be THAT parent that sends your kid in with crazy sugary treats).
I’m kidding, but their elementary school was super healthy – they don’t allow you to bring in cupcakes or anything like that to celebrate your child’s birthday with his/her class. I’ve sent in pretzels, Z-bars (a favorite in my household), and popcorn in the past for celebrations. I like the idea a lot…have you seen my youngest after ingesting sugar??? I couldn’t imagine 18 more of him in a classroom attempting to sit still and learn. I digress…back to the Valentines Day cards.
So, this is what you need:
I used plain card stock – you want to use something thicker than construction paper so that it supports the maze.
OK…so here is what you need to do:
Take the maze and apply four glue dots to the back, then affix to the card stock above the tag. Have your child sign the bottom and VOILA! a sugar free, handmade Valentines Day card!
Here are all of the supplies you’ll need!
