Be my iValentine

Last year, my daughter came home with her very own Valentine’s Day ‘iPod’….and she vowed that she wanted to make her own this year.

While I in no way lay claim to the idea, I thought it was cute/easy enough to share with all my mom friends who will undoubtedly be working on Valentine’s Day cards soon.  (Actually, Miss Monkey asked if we could take pictures of the process and then blog about it. Don’t ya just love her enthusiasm!)

With a few weeks left until those highly anticipated Valentine’s Day school parties, here’s what you’ll need:

  • Boxes of ‘conversation hearts’
  • Construction paper (large enough to wrap around your candy boxes
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Miniature Reese's cups
  • String (approx. 12 inches for each ear bud)
  • iPod wheel and playlist décor (I created this in Word using clipart and shapes. Each playlist was customized with each child’s name.)

Glue on iPod décor

 

We used tape to attach the string to the bottom of the box iPod. Another piece of tape was wrapped around the string (to connect the “ear buds” together) and then more tape to attach the “ear buds” (i.e., miniature Reese’s Cups).

And, Voila!

Your very own, Valentine iPod for your little munchkins to impress their friends with. (And you’ll look like a super, creative Mom. Double win.)
