Ah, Valentine’s Day! How I love all the pink and red yumminess. Kids will love these Valentine’s Flag Pencils, and you’ll love the fact that they are a fast and easy, non-candy Valentine. Plus, you can get a whole dozen pretty pencils at the dollar store, making this Valentine a really affordable one when you have a lot of kids in school.
Materials needed: Valentine’s pencils, cardstock, pink, red or gold washi tape, pen, alphabet stamps, ink pad, scissors.
Step 1: Cut out as many 3” x 2″ rectangles as you need (if you have a paper cutter, this will go much faster). Cut a notch in the 2” right side.
Step 2: Stamp the words “TO:” on the front of the flag, let dry, and stamp “FROM:” on the backside. If your child can write, have them write their friends’ names on the tags now.
Step 3: Attach the flags to the pencils using washi tape. Tape both the front and backsides to secure the flag. Decorate with extra heart stickers if you wish.
