Do you make valentines day gifts for your child’s class? I will be honest, I would rather paint a room then come up with creative valentines day gift ideas but every once in a while, I can produce a craft. ha. I don’t know about you but I grew up giving and receiving those little two dollar box of valentines day cards. We didn’t get or give gifts. How times have changed. This project was fun and so easy. I think my son and I will be doing this again this year for his class.
We created a valentine science experiment using plastic craft tubes filled with candy and used plastic craft gift boxes as the test tube holders.
Most of these items can be purchased at your local craft store.
I found that the pink and red M&M candies fit perfectly in these plastic craft tubes.
I am thinking these little plastic boxes filled with candy would be cute gifts for the teachers. The assembled plastic craft box, some red ribbon, red felt hearts, a faux flower from the craft store and some candy make a pretty darn cute teachers gift in my book.
For all the mason jar lovers out there, how about this cute little candy flower arrangement for a teacher?
