Admittedly it’s time for me to post something a little lighter. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner I thought I would share the craft we made for the kiddos to take to school.
I found this cute printout on the Family Fun web site that looks like the menu for an iPod. You can even change the song or fill in your kid’s name as the song title.
You will need:
Several copies of the “i Pod” printable
Boxes of candy conversation hearts
A bag of kisses
White string or cord (I used lanyard cord)
Red or pink paper
Tape, scissors and a glue stick.
I cut the cord about 4 feet and taped a kiss to each end.
Then fold the cord in half and tape the fold to the side of the candy heat box.
Wrap the box in a strip of colored paper and tape.
Cut out the menu and control pad for the iPod and use a glue stick to attach them to the box of candy.
Each of my girls made 15 for their classmates and I made a few for a play group that my younger two had here at home. Each kid had custom songs that included their names in the titles so their “valentine” is already signed.
We sat around the table and made all of them in a day with several breaks to go play. The most fun is watching them hold the kisses up to their ears and dance to the pretend music.
