I had the pleasure of turning my Pinterest board into reality last week to make Michael’s preschool valentines. I know I’m biased, but I’m pretty impressed with the final product. (
I really liked last year’s valentines too!)
You’re out of this world, Valentine!
Space ducks: unite!
These valentines are super easy to make, relatively inexpensive, and don’t include sugar, so they’re good for kids of all ages:
Buy these astronaut and space alien rubber ducks from Amazon Print out
this sheet of valentines on cardstock. Add your name on the bottom and cut them out.
Poke a hole.
Attach the tag to the duck.
Tie a bow, trim the edges. Voila!
