Craft Corner: 4 Cute & Clever Ways to Make Lollipop Valentines

๐Ÿ’– Cute Craft for Valentineโ€™s Day

By By Sarah Hauge, Publisher, Macaroni Kid, Englewood, Greenwood Village, Centennial February 9, 2019

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and nothing says "I like you" quite like a handmade card and some sweet treats. I imagine, however, that the other 25 students in my daughter's class will show up prepared to exchange a plethora of sugary goodies, so we plan to curb the cavities with a healthy alternative to the traditional lollipop: Zollipops! 

Zollipops are considered The After You Eat Treats® because they're actually good for your teeth! These tasty fruit-flavored morsels are sugar-free, nut-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and kosher — making them a great option for the classroom. As an added bonus, they're just the right shape for simple Valentine's Day crafts.

So grab your scissors, glue, and a bag of your favorite lollipops to get started.


1. Sweet Bouquet

Roses are red, violets are blue, lollipops are sweet, and so are you.
