Plus they don’t include candy, but they’re still super kid-friendly.
And, did I mention cheap? Seriously, the trifecta of Valentine’s Day cards for me: inexpensive, easy, and candy-free.
To make this Valentine craft, you’ll need:
- Boxes of chalk (They ship free with Amazon Prime, or you can pick them up for cheaper in-store at Walmart or Target)
- Chalkboard Paint
- Painters Tape
- A paintbrush
Tape around the edges of your box, so you have a nice frame (make sure to cover the hole that the boxes hang from – I didn’t on the first box and the paint dripped through and made ugly dribbles on the front. Avoid that). Press it down firmly so your paint won’t bleed through.
Paint an even coat. Let it dry briefly, then paint a second coat.
Let dry completely, then remove the tape, write a little message on the back with chalk (or you can fasten a tag through the top hanger hole with a message like “Let’s chalk about love” or something equally cheesy awesome), and pass around to all your friends.
Or your child’s friends.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
