Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! Cory's kindergarten class celebrated the holiday at school yesterday. We made these owl treat bags to hold their valentines. Easier and cheaper than the traditional Valentine box.
I made the samples above for the class: boy and girl owls with wiggly eyes, a doily middle and little heart feet.
I used kraft bags from the gift bag aisle at Michaels. The bags were sold by the dozen (a baker's dozen, actually) for $5.99. The bags measure 5.5 inches across and 8.5 inches tall. Perfect for this simple craft.
Two of the boys made these fun versions. Got to love the bug on the heart! Ha!
Above are versions the girls made. So sweet. I love how they all turned out.
This was a really fast craft for the class. They finished in about 15 minutes. Almost too fast as we had an hour to fill for the party!
After the bags were made, the kids distributed their Valentines. Or more accurately, I should say, the kids distributed the candy they brought in for class. It looked like Halloween! From the 24 kids in the class, Cory received one handmade Valentine, one traditional store bought card and 22 pieces of Valentine candy with a sticker wrapped around it. Truth in blogging: the "valentines" that Cory brought to school were in that latter category. No stones here!
The one lone handmade Valentine. Yoda best! Love it!
