Valentine’s Day is not just about flowers and candy. Kid’s like getting Valentines too. This year for Xavion’s nursery class (2 to 3 year olds), I decided to make some lucky duck valentines. I figured that the little kids and their parents would like getting a rubber duckie better than a bag full of candy. This is really easy to make and look really, really cute when finished. A totally age appropriate valentine for little kids.
Things You Need:
- Lucky Duck Valentine Cards (see below for FREE printable)
- Rubber duckies
- Clear plastic bags
Super Note: For my Singapore readers – I purchased the ducks (4 for S$2.00) and the plastic bags from Daiso (35 for S$2.00). The confetti was left-over from Zayden’s 4th birthday party and I printed the cards on my home color printer. The total cost for 20 valentines was less than S$12 (approx US$9.50). If you live in the US, you can probably do this for half that price if you buy the ducks from a party store like Oriental Trading.
Xavion was really excited about making Valentines for his friends and helped me by putting a duck and confetti in each of the bags. This did take longer than if I would have done it myself, but he seemed to be having a lot of fun, so I let him take his time.
After stuffing the clear plastic bags with the rubber duckie and confetti, place the card over the bag and staple the two sides. That’s it – now you have cute Lucky Valentine’s Day ducks.
