With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, the kids are getting ready to make their own Valentine’s Day crafts for school. That’s 25 per class x my 4 kids = 100 homemade cards! So, my goal going into February is to come up with original, affordable, and easy-to-assemble cards, especially because I have twins in kindergarten. I definitely don’t want to get stuck cutting, pasting, and assembling 100 valentines by myself.
From cute mustache pops to superhero suckers, these DIY Valentine’s Day crafts can make this special day even better.

This year, I bought four (4) bags of blow pops and tootsie pops, and thought of as many simple, DIY cards made from cardstock and construction paper that I have at the house! For my first one, this Mustache and Lips Blow Pops is fun and easy, even for the kids. I found a template on Pinterest, downloaded the PDF, and printed it on white cardstock. Then, the kids and I cut them out. Afterwards, we attached the mustache and lips to the blow pops, and that’s it!
My nine-year-old son wants to give these to his classmates. For the mustache, I think he’ll write something like, “Valentine, I found this is my ‘stache.” And “My lips are sealed” for the other.
