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
- Play Dough
- 2oz Condiment Cups
- A-Doh-Able Valentine’s Printable – Download the Free Printable Below
- Must Have Craft Tools
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.
