In today’s post: Print out our exSTRAW Special Valentine’s Day cards and pair them with heart shaped straws for a fun classroom Valentine idea.
Non Candy Valentine Idea
Today I’m sharing a fun classroom Valentine idea: heart shaped straws and a cute printable tag that says: “Hey Valentine! You are exSTRAW special.” These are easy to put together and perfect if you are looking for a non-candy Valentine idea.
You should be able to find heart shaped straws at Walmart, Dollar Tree, or a party supply store. I have found six packs of heart straws at Dollar Tree in previous years but did not see them at my store this year, so I checked Walmart and found eight packs for $2.50. You can print the tags from the blue box below this next photo, and then the only other thing you’ll need is a hole punch.
Make Your Valentine Cards
Print the tags out onto card stock or other heavyweight paper. There are six tags per page. Trim along the lines to separate the tags, then fill them out with your name. Then punch a hole near the top right corner and bottom left corners of each tag and thread a straw through each hole. I found that the straws stay in the tags without being taped, but you can certainly add a little tape across the back to secure them if you’d like.
