Here is another idea for Valentine’s Day- this one is a free printable and you can use it in a few different ways. For the children with crayons, homemade crayons, markers, pens or I think it makes a really cute little teacher gift!
Those of you with older children might use this as well as a Valentine with really cool glitter pens and such.
To make crayons is super simple and this could be a fun project to do with the little ones. You can make these in any color or size or shape that you like. Get the directions for homemade crayons here.
And if you don’t want to make the crayons- here is how they look with box crayons from the store. Crayola makes 8 packs with Princesses, Mermaids, Neon, Pirates, Superheroes– I think these are really fun.
If you want to skip the little cello bag- just trim down the printable and it can be tied to the front of the Crayon box.
And I just love this for a teacher gift. Inexpensive, useful and I think it is cute. You can put Dry Erase markers inside, fun pens… whatever you think the teacher might like. I bought some great gel pens at the craft store, added them to a blue Ball Jar and tied with baker’s twine. Make a nice table for dinner for Valentine’s Day with cheap grills on Amazon.
PS: I am repeating this idea again this year with our teachers. I changed it up a little:
This particular teacher needed highlighters otherwise I would have purchased my favorite Papermate pens you can find here.
