I really like Valentine’s Day because well…CRAFTY. However, my boys do not like CRAFTY so I have to be really
tricky creative to get them to do crafts. The most important quality of any craft we do is that it has to be EASY.
So, I give you the boy-friendly (and beautiful!)….
Stained Glass Valentines
Printer Paper (or card stock) This was a what-do-I-have-in-the-house-craft so I used printer paper
Tissue Paper (So glad I am a gift bag/tissue paper hoarder!)
First, cut the printer paper into quarters. Then tear the tissue paper (any colors you want/have!) into small pieces. The boys really liked this part.
Fold each quarter paper in half and cut out a heart.
We are making these Valentines for the boys’ classmates so the boys wrote the name of each classmate and their names on each one.
Cut a piece of contact paper. Peel off the back and place the sticky side up on a table. Carefully stick each heart shape piece name-side down on the contact paper.
Cover with tissue paper!!!
Have fun! Go nuts! Be Valentine-y!
Cover the the cards with another piece of contact paper and smooth down carefully, trying to avoid air pockets.
Cut out each card.
Pat yourself on the back and admire your craftyness and the fact that you tricked your sons into enjoying a craft.
Give your Valentines to your friends.
Or hang them in the window!
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
