I know so many kids who are crazy for the llama trend right now. From shirts to pillows, cute little llamas are every where. This Llama Valentine’s Day Classroom Handout is fun to make and even more fun to give to all your friends!
I am using my Cricut machine for this project. If you do not have a Cricut machine, the kiddos can always cut card stock hearts, use markers to write the words, and hole punch the places for the twine to go through the card.
The llamas for this project are from Oriental Trading. Whether you are getting crafty this Valentine’s Day or going with ready-made, Oriental Trading always has a wide variety of seasonal items from which to chose. I’ve already been using their sand slime and heart zipper pulls for Valentine’s Day handout crafts.
- Cricut machine – The Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore Air series machines will work for this project.
- Cricut LightGrip Cutting Mat
- Cricut Pen, 0.4 tip in black and red
- White card stock
- Small stuffed llama
- Baker’s twine
Open up Cricut Design Space. Use my already designed cut file found here. To resize the cut file for your specific stuffed llama, click “customize.” Otherwise, click “make it now.”
Send the design to your Cricut machine. Cricut Design Space will tell you which pen to place in the pen housing first. Once the Cricut machine is finished with the first pen, Cricut Design Space will prompt you to switch out the pens.
The Cricut machine will make the handout for you. Once it is complete, carefully pull the card from the LightGrip cutting mat. Insert the twine and use it to tie around the llama’s neck.
If this classroom Valentine handout isn’t the one for you this Valentine’s Day, maybe one of these will work:
