This year we made some pretty cute Valentines with the generous help of my friend Aimee and her Cricut machine! I saw this idea as a candy bar wrapper when I was looking up Christmas gift ideas, and tucked it away for Valentine's Day. Instead of candy bars we wrapped those natural fruit leather pieces, which fit perfectly. I had Aimee cut all the pieces of the penguin bodies out using the Cricut and then the kids assembled them over several days. Each penguin ended up looking a little different. And some were assembled with PLENTY of glue. I'm thankful Elmer's dries clear. Then we used a pencil eraser to stamp their eyes, taped the bodies around the fruit leather, slapped a label on each one and it was done! It was actually a very simple project, it just took a while to complete since we had to do enough Valentines for the entire kindergarten! The ones I saw online are much more elaborate, with stocking caps and feet and other details. I felt like getting these few shapes down in a relatively penguin-ish fashion was ambitious enough for us. It was a great way for Mr. T to write all his classmates' names out, a few at a time, in a really small space.
