With Valentine’s Day just a few days away, there’s time for kids to forgo a store-bought card or gift and make something from the heart. Take a shot at one of our easy, homemade valentines.
They’re fun to make, simple to assemble and easy on the wallet. The hardest part about them is trying not to eat all the candy while you put them together (trust us, we know from experience).
Whether your kids plan to hand them out to pint-size classmates or family members, they’re sure to impress with their heartfelt creations.
We’ve even included a how-to video to show you how to do them.
Let’s stick together
Easy to assemble and tastier to eat, these colorful candy kebabs are a guaranteed way to brighten your special someone’s day. Note: For this craft, we suggest using soft or gummy candies, as they are the easiest to skewer.
Just a love machine
