Not your Average Valentine!

Not your Average Valentine!

Does the little one in your life need some help creating some unique Valentines this year? Take a look at these two simple projects that will keep the kids amazed with your creativity and help them stand out from all those other simple Valentines!

CEREAL VALENTINES*

Make labels for each of the eight boxes of cereal included in the regular General Mills mini pack. Just wrap your boxes in kraft paper (5.5″ x 10″) and secure with double stick tape.  Then trim your valentine cereal labels, center the label and secure with another piece of tape.  Tie a small wooden spoon to the side of the box using some red baker’s twine, and voila! Enjoy!

Here are some ideas!

You have a heart of Gold. – Golden Grahams

I’m not playing Trix.  I really like you. – Trix

You are my Lucky Charm. – Lucky Charms

I like you Oh so much! – Cheerios (all three varieties)

You make my heart Swirl. – Cinnamon Toast Crunch

I’m Cuckoo for you. – Cocoa Puffs

 

FELT FORTUNE COOKIES*

Materials Needed

Felt

Ribbon

Fabric shears

Wire cutters

Craft glue

 

STEP 1

Using fabric shears, cut a 4 1/2-inch-diameter circle from a piece of felt. Cut a piece of matching ribbon slightly shorter than 4 1/2 inches. Using wire cutters, cut a piece of floral wire slightly shorter than the length of ribbon.

STEP 2

Using craft glue, affix the wire to the middle of the felt circle. Glue ribbon on top, covering the wire. Let dry 30 minutes.

STEP 3

Fold the felt circle in half, using the wire as a guide, so ribbon is inside cookie. Next, angle the sides toward each other, bending the wire at its halfway point and forming a fortune-cookie shape.

STEP 4

Assemble the fortune cookies. Carefully peel back one flap of the felt cookie, and insert a paper fortune and a few candies. Fold the flap back over to close cookie around contents.
