Last week, I ran into my local Sam’s Club for a few things and noticed this large box of animal crackers marked down to two bucks and some change. I checked the expiration date (still good until April), and immediately thought of upcoming Valentine’s Day. I bought a box and came home to work on a quick printable to attach to the crackers. With three kindergarten boys, I have to make classroom valentines as inexpensive and easy as possible! For these Animal Cracker Classroom Valentines, my home printer and my Cricut does the bulk of the work. My boys do the rest.
- Cricut machine with fine point blade– Any machine that is compatible with Cricut Design Space will work. I’m using the Cricut Maker, but any of the Cricut Explore Air machines will work for this project, too.
- Cricut LightGrip Cutting mat
- White card stock – 8.5″ by 11″ -Since this is a Print then Cut project, the paper has to be able to fit in your home printer.
- Adhesive – Glue Dots work well for this
- Small bags of animal crackers
- Home printer
