Valentine’s Day is approaching and for some reason after Halloween and Christmas I am just tired of sweets. So, last year we made some homemade crayons into the shapes of hearts, dinosaurs, fish and Turtles to pass out to friends and classmates.
Of course, we could not just hand out crayons without cards and so we created some to go with the crayons. The end result? Some super cute cards with fun sayings on them like, “I like stomping around with you!”
Once we made the homemade crayons, we used sponges to create a shape to stamp on the kiddos cards with some paint. We picked a paper T-Rex foot print to create the stamp for my son’s dinosaur crayons and a fish cookie cutter to create the stamp for my daughter’s fish & turtle crayons.
They loved stamping these on the cards!
We also happened to have some chocolates, so we added those in, too, for her little friends. Her card says “U R A Fin-tastic Friend!” Both kiddos were so excited to have something to share!
What are your favorite Creative Valentine’s Day Cards?

These are so cute! I love the homemade stamp out of the sponge too. You’re a clever one!
