A few years ago, one of my most popular posts was on Non-Candy Valentines for Kids. With all of the candy that kids get for Valentine’s Day, a non-candy idea is always appreciated by parents (at least, I know that it is by me!). While searching for something on Cricut Design Space a few weeks ago, I stumbled upon these DIY Crayon Classroom Valentines in the Make It Now section. These valentines are ready to cut and are non-candy. If you have Cricut Access, they are no additional cost!
I already had all of the supplies to create these at home.
- White card stock
- Cricut Pen
- Cricut Explore Air or Cricut Explore Air 2
- Cricut Standard Grip Cutting Mat
Head to the Valentine Coloring Card Make It Now project on Cricut Design Space. ****Edit- Some users have reported that they are not able to access the project through the link. If you cannot find the project through the link, head to Cricut Design Space and type in “coloring cards” in the project search box. ***
Click “Make It Now” on the bottom right corner. The project cut page will open. Cut as many cards as you need for your children or your child’s class.
Lift up the crayon tabs and insert two crayons per card.
The crayons stay well inside the tabs. I wondered initially if they would fall out easily, but the way that the tabs fold up keep them inside the slots. The holes are made for standard size crayons. The larger crayons may fit, but it would be tight.
There are three animal designs- a whale, a dinosaur, and an owl. They are each so cute!
What sorts of Valentines do your kids like to hand out? Would these be a hit in their classroom? This Make It Now project from Cricut makes it so easy!
