Hello Skip to My Lou Readers! I am Larissa from Just Another Day in Paradise and I am so excited to be back this year sharing another fun and easy Valentine printable. This year I have a fun, cheap, and easy non candy valentine.
I love candy as much as the next gal. I mean I really, really love it. However, after months of sweets I am ready to cut back on the sugar for both me and my Little Men. So I have created a printable (using PicMonkey) that coordinates with those easy to find plastic bugs. I hereby dub it the You Are Really CRAWLsome Valentine.
This is a great classroom Valentine, especially for classes with a no candy policy or with a child who has a severe allergy.
These You Are Really CRAWLsome valentines are really easy to make.
To make these valentines, you start by downloading the You Are Really Crawlsome printable.

You will also need:
Plastic Bugs (they can often be found in the party favor section of larger stores like WalMart and Target)
Small plastic treat bags
Sewing machine and coordinating thread OR a stapler and staples
To make the You Are Really CRAWLsome Valentine you place a bug in each plastic bag.
You print, cut out, and fold in half the printable. Place the top of the bug filled treat bag sandwiched between the folded printable. To close the valentine I used my sewing machine. I chose a large stitch (3.5) and I ran it across the bottom of the printable making sure the bag was securely in place. If you don’t want to sew the valentine, you can easily use a few staples to secure the valentine closed instead.
Before you know it you have a whole mess of non candy, little kid approved bug-tastic valentines perfect for any classroom Valentine party.
