What you’ll need:

  • Colored Paper Straws (available at Hatchlings & Hens – and only $1 for a pack of 24!)
  • Crush brand flavored singles packets (the kind you add to bottled water)
  • 8 1/2″ x 11″ Natural Colored Card-Stock (available at Hobby Lobby in the scrapbooking section)
  • Color Printer
  • Handheld Hole Punch
  • Scissors
  • Crush Valentine Template (download here)
  • Double-sided Tape

Directions:
Download and print the valentine template on your color printer and cut them out individually. Using the hole punch, punch a hole on the top and bottom of the word “Crush” – this will create a spot for the straw to slide through. Insert one straw in each valentine through the holes you created with the hole punch. Using the double-sided tape, tape one Crush packet on each Valentine. Have your child write a message to their friend and sign their name on the back! Voila!
