Craft Corner: A Lollipop Valentine for You!

๐Ÿ’– Cute Craft for Valentineโ€™s Day

By Shayna Mills, NE Dallas Macaroni Kid Publisher February 12, 2014

I love all holidays! I love the parties, the candy, and the fun in the atmosphere that surrounds most special occasions. 

Valentine's Day is a favorite of mine, especially now that I have a child of my own. I really enjoy making special cupcakes and putting together goody bags for the kids in her class. And I REALLY love making Valentine's Day cards.

Here's a fun little project you can do with your child to build memories and get that "Awww!" factor when he or she delivers them. Have fun handing out these special Valentines this year and making a fun memory with your little Cupid! 

What You Need:

  • Camera or Smartphone
  • Lollipops
  • Cute Kid
  • X-acto Knife
  • Tape

What You Do:

Step One: Have your cute child stand with his/her arm extended out to the side and hand making a light fist (as if holding a flower). Take several pictures to ensure you get one you can use.

Step Two: Upload your picture to your computer and add the following text:

"I'm Just A Sucker For A Valentine Like You! Love... (Your Child's Name)"


Step Three: Print your photos and cut a slit with an X-acto knife at the top of the child's hand and at the bottom of the hand.

Step Four: Slide your lollipop into the slits are and tape on the back to hold the sucker in place.
