DIY Valentine: Light Up My Day
Fun and Frugal Valentine’s Day DIY!
Does your Valentine light up your life?
Remember Valentine’s Day when you were a kid? I loved decorating shoe boxes and cutting holes in them as “Mail Slots” for Valentine’s day cards from classmates. It was a fun celebration with a party afterward. Fun day & fun memories all these years later. Get started on a creative Valentine’s Day project for your kiddos and keep the cost LOW! This is one the kids will love!
You can see all of our Non-Candy Valentine’s Day card ideas here! That’s right… NO CANDY with these Valentines! We are going with toy options instead of candy to help keep our kids healthy. Hope you enjoy the ideas we have to share.
You will need:
- LED Finger Lights 40 ct – $6.99 ($0.17 each)
- LED Finger Lights 80 ct – $7.54 ($0.09 each)
- Self Sealing Cello Bags 100 ct – $4.92 ($.05 each)
- Free Printable Light up My Day Valentine Card <<— download and print!
We recommend the Cello bags for this project because of how the overall project turned out while using them. They were pretty cheap to buy and made it really easy to keep the prize with the card! Look below to see how they turned out and how much they cost…
My kids love these finger lights. They come in several colors; red, green, blue and clear. We have a box of the 80, and the kids can often be seen running around with a different color on each hand. I’m also impressed with how long the flashlight lasts on the set of batteries it comes with! Find a friend to split the cello bags and the 80 ct of lights with you to save more money! The total cost of these Valentines is $0.16 each (for the 80 count)!
