My son is not allowed to have candy or sweets at his Preschool, so I thought a bookmark would be a cute Valentine "treat" he could take to his little friends. It was so simple to make that we were able to assemble enough for his whole class in no time. :-)
First, we printed some bookmarks on our computer (you could hand write them too), and cut the paper into strips. (I used a paper cutter but scissors would be fine.)
The bookmarks say, "I ♥ having a friend like you".
For the "heart", I used a heart-shaped picture of my four year old. I printed them on my computer, and used a heart-shaped punch to cut them out. (Again... scissors would work too.)
Finally, I punched a hole at the top of the bookmark and added a little ribbon.
Easy, inexpensive, and a great alternative to candy and chocolate! Happy Valentines Day!
