My youngest daughter and I recently spent an entire evening creating and coming up with cute ideas for Valentine’s Day cards! These were so much fun and actually much easier than I anticipated. For you, they will be even easier as all you will need to do is print out what we have created to make your cards. Here’s another easy and fun non-candy Valentine’s Day idea. Yes, there is more to Valentine’s Day than chocolate. You should be able to find glow sticks at your local dollar store. If you can’t or don’t want to make the trip, you can find deals on glow sticks in bulk on Amazon too.
Once you print out the FREE printables we have created below, you can punch two holes in the paper and slide the glow stick through. Be careful not to activate the glow stick! I did this to one of them and I’m enjoying it in the dark as I type! :)
“My Heart Glows” Glow Stick Non-Candy Valentine’s Day Idea
We tried both the thicker card stock type paper and just regular printer paper. Either one with work fine and I would just use whatever you have on hand to save money. Kids aren’t really going to care if it’s thicker paper so I’m fine with the inexpensive paper and it still looks nice. You can also buy smaller clear plastic bags from a craft store but I just bought a package of snack size bags from the Dollar General store for just $2 and folded these over. Again, the plain clear bags from the craft store will look nicer but kids aren’t going to notice the difference.
Idea was inspired by Delia Creates.
