With Valentines Day fast approaching, I decided yesterday that we needed to get started on the 20+ valentines for my daughter to pass out to her friends at school. So yesterday I got all the stuff together and we started making some Flower Lollipop Valentines. We only made a few yesterday but that is okay we can do a couple every day and then be done in plenty of time.
The last couple of years we decided it was more fun to make a special treat (last year we made Butterfly Lollipops) than to just buy them at the store. Not to mention it is usually cheaper. For this project you can get everything you need at the dollar store, which makes this a pretty cheap valentine for your kids.
And since my daughter is in Kindergarten this helps her with her writing since I will have her write a small note on each leaf (I did the first one in the picture to show her what to do). I know when my daughter makes things to pass out she feels so proud and just enjoys the whole giving experience more.
you will need to help your younger kids a bit with this project since there is some cutting to do but they can do quite a bit of it them selves.
Blow pops (or any lollipop you like)
