CREATE …. naturally sweet valentine DIY with healthy fruit strips | by five and one



Thinking of crafty Valentines lately and what to create with my boys this year that would have a cool boy factor.  Still working on THIS, but I’ll let you know if I come up with an idea.  Meanwhile, I posted this one on Facebook before this blog was ready, so I wanted to share it with you again along with the templates. It’s a simple card that is folded over a healthy fruit snack, held together by a clothespin wrapped with washi tape or a child’s own design.


you will need ….

– traditional wooden clothespins | I bought mine at hobby lobby, but you can also purchase yours here.

– Stretch Island Fruit Company fruit snacks (or similar fruit strip) – found in the natural foods section of most stores

– assorted washi tape  for decorating clothespins or have your children use markers to make their own design.
