Love Bug Valentines

February 12, 2015

 I kind of waited until the last minute to put together Hudson's valentines. His school asked that we not bring in candy, so I had to find something that was cute, creative, and most of all....easy. Thank goodness for Pinterest and these adorable love bug valentines. I had them printed on card stock and then swung by the $1 store to find some bugs. Easiest project ever.

Except my little "helper" wanted to, you know, help. So that slowed me a down a bit. But still, they turned out so cute and Hudson is so excited about this BUGS!

 I just used cute washi tape to stick the bugs on each little jar. 

We only had to make 12, so with printing and bugs this cost me a whopping $5...and we could have made 8 more without spending more, since we had leftover bugs and jars. Unfortunately, most of the leftover bugs were cockroaches, which my husband made me throw away after Hudson went to bed. They totally freaked both of us out!

Have your little ones made their valentines yet?

  5. Haha, nobody wants the cockroaches, lol! Those are TOO cute, Julie! I went the easy route this year, and just taped little hearts onto little fruit snacks bags with a cute note on them. Maybe next year I'll get a bit more creative:)
