Flower Lollipop Valentines

Flower Lollipop Valentine

 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.

Supplies

Blow pops (or any lollipop you like)
Tissue Paper (we used red but you could also use pink)
Green Foam Paper

Directions

 Each sheet of Tissue Paper will make 4 flowers.  So you will need to cut your sheet in to 4.
 Start by folding your paper in half one way then fold it in half again the other way.  This should give you a square piece of tissue paper.
 Cut your paper on the creases to get your 4 sheets.
Place your lollipop in the center of one square and fold the paper around the lollipop and then twist the paper around.  You can choose to cut off any extra paper if you want but you don’t have too.
Next draw out a leaf shape on your foam paper.  Then you can have the kids trace the leaf  to make more.
 Cut your leafs out and have your children write a message on the leafs.  Each flower will get three leafs so they can write three messages if you want.
Stick your your lollipop through one end of the leaf and push them up.  This will help to hold the paper in place.
Just do this how ever many times needed to get enough for the class.
