"Blow Me Away" Valentine's Day Card

Hey everyone! I hope you are all off to a great start in 2016! I have been so busy with my sweet baby that I have not had time to actually blog. Hopefully, I will be able to visit with y'all a little more frequently and continue to share ideas and resources for your classroom.
Today, I wanted to share a quick Valentine's Day card that my students will be making next week. It's super easy, does not require a lot of time and I know parents and loved ones with greatly appreciate them!

The first thing you'll need to do is "set the stage." I used black butcher paper and hung it over one of my bulletin boards. Then, I used our die-cut machine (literally, the only time I have used it all year) and cut out pink hearts. I used two different sizes to give the effect that the hearts were floating away. Tape the hearts onto the butcher paper, mostly in the top left corner.
Now it's time to take the pictures! Have your students stand sideways with their hands "cupped" at their chin. Then, instruct them to blow as you take the picture. My students said they felt extremely silly, but once I showed them their picture, they were so excited for me to print them.
Finally, print your pictures and the Valentine's Day cards (GRAB HERE). Then, attach the pictures! That's it! 

Already have a Valentine's Day craft? Pin this and save it for later!
Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
