You Make My Heart Glow Valentine

Share this post

With a 3-year-old in preschool I needed to come up with something special this Valentine’s Day for all her new friends.  I wanted to avoid candy so I took her for a stroll through the party section of a store and asked her what she wanted to give her friends.  She picked glow sticks, her fave. This was perfect, I had already pinned some adorable glow stick Valentines and had some great ideas to make my own simple version.

She needs about 15 to cover her school and church friends so I didn’t want these to be complicated.

I created and printed a punny little note on white card stock for each glow stick. I just used Picmonkey; nothing special, no color, no graphics.  A little colored card stock and of course a brightly colored glow stick are all I needed.

I used a label die to cut a pretty shape out of the white card stock and layered it with red card stock in the same shape.  Then I punched 2 holes, top and bottom, to hold the glow stick.

No wrapping, no candy; pretty easy to punch out 15 of these.  And what kid doesn’t love glow sticks, right?!

What are you doing for your kids Valentines this year?
