Chalk It Up to Love Valentine

Don't know about you, but isn't there enough chocolate and candy to go around on Valentine's Day? Do the other moms a favor and give the kids this alternative instead.

  • Zippered snack baggies (6.5 in x 3.25 in)
  • Strips of scrapbook paper or wrapping paper in Valentines-y print (6.5 x 4 in, folded to 6.5 x 2 in)
  • Stapler
  • White paper to print messages on
  • Glue stick
  • Bucket of sidewalk chalk
  1. Take a plastic zippered snack baggie and place one sidewalk chalk inside and seal.
  2. Fold over a strip of scrapbook paper to cover the zippered top and staple at the two ends.
  3. Print off your message, sign it, trim to size and glue it to the strip.
Easy peasy! Here's the printable message page (8.5 x 11 in, lettersize) with room for your child to sign his or her own name.
