Valentine's Day Kindergarten Style

I have been crafting away all weekend preparing for Valentine's day.
My first craft was to cut up some old Crayola and melt them into heart shaped Jumbo-sized Crayons.

I will be wrapping each crayon in a bag I bought at the Target Dollar Spot with a tag I made that reads, "Color your Heart out Valentine!"

I also made some cute Valentine Joke boxes that are filled with goodies for my Kindergarteners. I found this idea on Pinterest and if you are interested in any of these free printables, they can be found on the blog, Delia Creates

I used cardstock from Target, which worked well for cutting and printing purposes

To fill my boxes, I added an assortment of erasers, stickers, tattoos, and candy corn (All from the Valentine Section at Target!)

To ensure my boxes would stay secure, I used a small amount of hot glue.

I can't wait to give the kiddos these gifts! I hope they like them!
On that note.... I just got Evelina's Valentine picture from my sister! Check this little ham out.. OMG.



  1. Those boxes are adorable, and your little girl OMG what a cutie!!

  2. Look at your cute stuff! Precious! I'm impressed!

    Peace, Love, and First Grade
