Glow stick Valentine’s

Kids’ valentines ideas are all over the web right now. I especially love all the ideas that aren’t sweets. Like the homemade heart-shaped crayons, felt bookmarks or bouncy balls.

For both of my preschoolers, I ended up putting together these little glow stick Valentines. I was inspired by this blog and found the glow sticks in the dollar bins at Target. (15 for $1) They are incredibly simple to make and I know my kids love glow sticks, so surely they’ll be a hit!

Happy Valentine making!!!

    Thanks jammie

    I saw this idea and new it was perfect for my son’s class. He is in special Ed (very high function but is non verbal) there are kids in his class who are tube fed so they can’t eat candy. We use glow sticks sometimes in therapy mostly for fun. Anyway, thank you so much for the idea and easy PDF file. These will be a big hit!!

  29. Mari says:

    Love The idea, but how do you insert name of child on it? Thank you!

  30. LoorieNow says:

    Hello. And Bye.

  31. Marcy says:

    Love the glow stick idea and my daughter loved it also…already went out to buy them today. I cant figure out how to insert my childs name on the pdf. Can you email an editable version to me? I would greatly appreciate it.

    But just now, I am listening to an amazing song called ‘No Air’ with Chris Brown and Jordin Sparks.

    For a woman, talking to a man about anything is like being in the dark with no volume.

    Thank you for the PDF. It’s a brilliant idea and I will be using it for my daughters class.

  36. Lisa B says:

    I love the glow ones except for the fact that they are grammatically incorrect. They should read “Happy Valentine’s Day”, or “Happy Valentine’s”. The day originally belonged to a Saint, not to the cards. Any chance’s that will be changed before Friday?

    These are SO AWESOME!!! Thank you so much for the awesome ideas and printable!
