‘A-Doh-Able’ Play Dough Class Valentines

‘A-Doh-Able’ Play Dough Class Valentines

One of my favorite crafty projects is making customized class Valentines for each of my kids.  For me, they have all of the makings of a perfect project.  I love taking on a project like this because I can’t procrastinate for too long or I will miss Valentine’s Day (Hello Motivation!).  They are really simple and don’t take a lot of effort but turn out looking awesome.  They also make me happy because my kids get to give a rockin’ Valentine to all of their friends.  No store bought Valentine’s in this house!  Plus, they are just so darn cute.

This year inspiration struck when I was making Kool-Aid play dough for my toddler.  The dough turned out so pretty and smelled great.  I thought it would be so much fun to give each friend their own container of pretty, yummy smelling play dough.  My big kids have been having a lot of fun playing with brother’s play dough and thought this was a great idea as well.

I really love that this is a non-edible Valentine.  It feels like my kids always come home with so much candy from exchanging Valentine’s.  I always appreciate when a friend gives them something other than candy.  The absolute best part of the whole project is that each Valentine only costs about 33 cents each!!

I am excited to share these “A-Doh-Able” Class Valentine’s with you!

What You’ll Need

All you need to do is fill each cup with a small amount of the play dough.  I was able to make 10 portions of play dough with each batch.  Then trim each Valentine into a square and attach to the top of the condiment cup with a glue dot.  So simple, right?

I blinged mine up a little bit by adding a black paper border, filling in the “A-Doh-Able” with a glitter pen, and adding a few rhinestones.  You can use the printable just as it is, or you can bling them up like I did.  Use your imagination and have fun customizing the Valentine’s however you’d like.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I have been thinking about how I want to celebrate with my little ones this year.  As a chef’s wife, my husband always has to work on Valentine’s Day.  No romantic dinners out for me on February 14th.  I don’t mind one bit because I still get to celebrate with my three little Valentine’s who call me mommy.

Last year, I had a little fun and made my sweethearts matching t-shirts.  I am absolutely in love with how they turned out.  Better yet, we spent the day exploring one of the California missions and I was able to get some adorable pictures of my kiddos sporting their Valentine’s Day t-shirts.

These shirts were so easy to make with the Cricut Explore Air.  I was able to make them in just a few minutes.  My daughter’s shirt took a little bit longer because I modified the t-shirt. (For directions to make the modified t-shirt, take a look at Part 3 of my Sleepover Shenanigans series when I made 15 modified t-shirts for my daughter’s last birthday party!)  If you’d like to make these shirts, the design that I used is available for free as part of Cricut Access.

I hope you have enjoyed these adorable Valentine’s Day t-shirts.  If you liked this post, I also hope you will sign up for my mailing list.  Just for signing up, you will get a great family meeting guide + printable.
