Duct Tape Heart

Make a fun and fluffy duct tape heart to make his Valentine’s Day exciting. By cutting strips of duct tape in the color of your choice, you can make a heart he is sure to enjoy. Once two heart forms have been created, you can stuff the inside with pillow stuffing or scrap fabric to make a squishy heart.

Robot Valentine

This quirky little robot valentine will have him smiling and laughing as he bounces him around the room and make him talk like a droid. The body of this robot is made from a snack sized candy bar covered in scrapbooking paper. The head, legs and arms are made from complimenting colored paper and all glued to card stock. You can see how to make this robot with pictures.

Love Bugs

Tell him he is your little love bug with creepy crawlies attached to cut out paper hearts. Choose a heavy cardstock in a vibrant color, and cut out heart. In the center of the heart, attach a plastic bug of your choice. Write a special message to your son on the cardstock and add the phrase, my little love bug. Here you can see instructions with pictures. 

Fish Valentine

For a non-candy Valentine’s Day option, give him gold fish. He is sure to be happy with a bag full of fish for a snack. Attach the message, “Will you o”fish”ally by mine?” on the outside of the bag or box. Pack this in his lunch for a Valentine’s Day surprise. See full instruction here.

Dino Love
