My kids love crafting and creating with perler beads, so I thought why not make a few adorable Valentines with them?
There are so many options, but we stuck with a bubble gum machine and a guitar so we could use the phrases, “Won’t Chew be Mine” and “You Rock my World”. The cheesier the better, right? 🙂 I think so, and the kids sure do love clever word associations too.
Ever since my kids got the perler beads for Christmas, the kitchen table has been cluttered with them. I love to watch my kiddos having fun creating. We have a huge bag filled with their masterpieces! I’ll soon be needing to find a bigger container to house them, I’m sure. I’ve been the master ironer over the past little while. 🙂 But I love my job.
When my daughter showed me an adorable bubble gum machine and guitar that she made the other evening, I knew I needed to incorporate them into a fun valentine that she could share with her friends and classmates!
This Valentine idea requires a little more time than some, but if your kids are like mine and spend every spare minute creating with perler beads, you might as well channel their efforts towards a fun cause! 🙂
As long as they start early, they’ll totally be able to whip out enough adorable valentines to hand out at school on Valentine’s Day.
I appreciate that this is a great non-sugary option, since the kids always get plenty of treats, not that I’m completely opposed to that. 🙂
This is a unique idea that is sure to be a hit at the class valentine exchange!
