It’s our favorite time of year – time to make cheesy homemade Valentine’s. My kids look forward to this every year. My husband and I come up with several ideas and they decide which they want to take to school. This year the overwhelming favorite from all our options was this darling paper bear cut out holding a bag of mini gummy bears with a sign that says “You’re a Beary good friend, Valentine.” I think all three kids are going to take it to their parties.
This is a super easy and cute Valentine to make. All you need are:
- Printable Bear/ Heart sign
- Different shades of brown paper
- Mini Gummy Bear packs (you can order these in bulk on Amazon or check your local party supply store)
First, print out a template of the bears. Below is what the printable looks like. You can download the printable, save it to your computer and then print it as much as you want. You can even print directly onto brown and red papers if you want to piece the bears together that way.
Glue the two bears together (Or just put all the features on one piece of paper using paint or gluing on the nose and paws). Then we taped on the little gummy bear candy bags and taped the heart on top of it. It was pretty fast assembly once we had the bears ready to go.
We also have a lot of fun Valentine crafts, recipes, games, printables and more on our Valentine’s Day page.
