Do-it-yourself Valentines Present Concept 

I might say these match into the preschool valentine playing cards class, however I feel elementary faculty youngsters would take pleasure in these as nicely.

Hayes needed one thing that needed to with development or vehicles (something with wheels mainly). And I needed to present his classmates one thing that they may use greater than as soon as / would hopefully dangle onto for some time. I strive to not give Valentines that might instantly get thrown away. Feels form of wasteful.

Anyway! Right here’s methods to make a selfmade Valentines present that’s considerate and nonetheless fairly simple…


Listed below are all of the supplies I used for the varsity Valentines…

  • automobile containers crammed with lego formed crayons* 
  • youngsters valentines development printable – There are a bunch of choices on Etsy, however I linked the precise one I used.
  • glue stick
  • string
  • cereal containers – Any form of skinny cardboard will work. It doesn’t must be a cereal field.
  • paper (will be clean or lined) – I used printer paper I already had.
  • paint and paint brush – You may additionally use youngsters paint sticks for this. That’s what I used and it labored simply as nicely (and fewer messy).
  • stapler
  • small muslin luggage (non-obligatory)

*The corporate that makes the containers which have the crayons inside is known as Goober. They promote them throughout on-line. 

They arrive in a set of 4 containers and it’s $29 for that set. BUT I did some digging and located them on sale for $22 (for a 4 pack), which made every field slightly over $5.

Purchased them on Flying Pig Toys – they don’t have the automobile / development ones on their website now. However there’s a nature model that’s tremendous cute and on sale for $17 for the set of 4. Moon Picnic nonetheless has those I used right here: pocket crayons blocks set.

Price of Valentines

For me, the ultimate price of every classroom Valentine got here out to about $6, accounting for completely all the things I bought for it. Some issues I already had – string, cereal containers, paint, paper, stapler, and so forth.

Truthfully, I don’t know if this looks as if some huge cash for a youngsters Valentine or slightly. However I did look into some cheaper choices first (that also had slightly Valentine present with every one, not only a paper card) and it added as much as about two {dollars} much less per child. There aren’t many youngsters in Hayes’ class, so it appeared cheap to me to only go for the cutest possibility, imo. 

Clearly, do what feels proper to you and your funds. I’m sure that you possibly can DIY one thing related and avoid wasting cash that approach (see beneath). However for me, I simply didn’t have a lot vitality for making crayons and adorning containers, and so forth.

How To Make these Classroom Valentines

1. Print and minimize printables.

To make these classroom valentines, I printed and minimize out the development printable I linked from Etsy, within the supplies checklist. You can too make your individual, however for only a few {dollars}, shopping for a printable was price for me. The much less work the higher.

2. Glue and add title plate.

Then, I glued them to the again of every field and had Hayes signal every one. There’s slightly spot on the facet of the containers that claims title, so I added every classmates title to that part.

3. Make mini notebooks.

After which I made the mini notebooks to go along with it (included a tutorial beneath for the notebooks).

4. Bundle them up.

I initially thought I’d add the finished Valentines – illustrated containers with crayons and the notebooks – to a muslin bag for every classmate. Which you’ll be able to see in a few of the images beneath.

However then I spotted it wouldn’t be simple for the academics to go out as a result of the title on the field can be exhausting to see once they’re within the bag. And I didn’t wish to must make extra title tags for the luggage.

So, I pivoted and made the notebooks even smaller, so they’d match inside every field.

I needed to make them slightly thinner on this case, since there wasn’t a variety of room within the containers with crayons already in there. However I bought them in! After which I tied them up with string to ensure nothing fell out. That’s why you see two totally different choices for packaging within the images.

Make your individual ‘brick’ crayons

If you wish to make Lego(ish) crayons and avoid wasting cash, I’ve a tutorial for melting crayons into molds.

And I discovered a ‘bricks’ mildew on Michaels that’s related for beneath $6.

For those who’re prepared to place within the work, it is a cheaper possibility. They’re not precisely the identical…I feel those I purchased are cuter bc there are totally different shapes and so they stack onto one another. BUT the DIY model would nonetheless be actually candy.

Methods to Make Tiny Pocket book Valentines

I needed so as to add slightly DIY to those development / automobile Valentines.

I made a decision notebooks can be the best choice as a result of they’re fast, simple, and free (since I had all the things I wanted already). Love utilizing issues I have already got for this sort of factor.

To make the notebooks, I simply adopted the directions from my DIY notebooks tutorial. However as an alternative of utilizing wallpaper because the covers, I minimize up skinny cardboard from cereal containers and painted them on each side.

I let my son paint the outsides with paint sticks to present them a extra personalized kiddo vibe. Just like my cereal field artwork undertaking.
