Valentine's day is quickly approaching.
My daughter's valentines have been done for weeks.
My son is...well,
Valentine's day for 11 year old boys is not easy.
He doesn't want anything girly, mushy, pink or babyish.
He doesn't want it to say 'You're sweet' or 'Be Mine' or 'Be My Valentine' or basically anything.
It needs to be OK to give to girls and guys
and not be embarrassing.
The valentine can NOT make any girl think that he likes them more than a friend.
I crafted up a few simple valentine choices,
and thought I would put my blog readers to the test.
I will present 5 different valentine ideas this week.
At the end of the week, you can guess (comment) which valentine you think my son will choose...then I'll reveal his choice.
Are you game?
I'm sure you've seen those Pop Rocks candies that kids seem to love...but did you know that the Dollar Tree carries their own version of Pop Rocks?
25 mini packages for $1.
That's enough for a whole class. This is a very inexpensive valentine to make!
Simply print out the cards, trim and tape on a package of Popping Candy or Pop Rocks.
Of course I used festive red chevron washi tape,
but plain tape can work too.
What do you think?
They're not mushy, not pink, not embarrassing, right?
Yes, they have red on them...but no hearts.
They could be for a girl or a boy.
Do you think my son will choose to hand these out?
