How many of you DIY your children’s Valentines cards? I always thought I would be, but let me tell you a quick story about my first crafty mom failure…last year Valentine’s day fell on the second day my oldest daughter started going to daycare. When I picked her up I was surprised at all the goodies and things they handed me and then it hit me…OF COURSE daycare kids exchange Valentines…why wouldn’t they?! While we made cards and things for family, I guess it never occurred to me that she would exchange cards with other children until she started school, so I didn’t send her to daycare with any cards or treats. :::Forehead slap::: Sad face. =( She was too little to know any different, but I felt like a complete failure nonetheless.
Needless to say, I made sure I was on the ball and made Valentines early this year. While this project is fun for Valentine’s Day, these lollipop covers make a fun photo prop any time!
I’m not really into the whole mustache craze (don’t really understand what all the fuss is about?!) but I must admit these sucker covers are pretty cute. And the kids think they are hilarious so if it makes the kids smile I’m all for it. =)
Here’s my early Valentine gift to you – if you’re the DIY kind I’ve made a template so you can make your own felt sucker covers. Or, if you’re a semi-DIY person you can use the other sheet to print and cut cardstock sucker covers (they’re just as fun!) There’s even a blank version so your child can color their own pieces.
For those non-DIY people you can order a set of sucker covers available in my Etsy shop.
