Super Sweet Ipod Valentine's!

Sorry that it's taken forever to post this! Our friends over at Delightful Order have a great ipod Valentines craft that we made on Sunday. So easy to make and not super girly-which Sam loved.

Here's what you'll need:
  • Sweetheart candy's in the small boxes- they are on sale everywhere right now
  • Reese's mini peanut butter cups
  • ribbon
  • glue- I used hot glue.
  • scissors
  • free printable ipod design find it here
First, you want to print out your ipods and get them all cut out. This can be a little tedious and your child may need help if they have 20+ kids in their class, like Sam. Second, get your glue gun plugged in and warmed up. Sam has used a glue gun in the past and is able to do so safely with close supervision. Do this at your discretion- I would suggest just letting them watch or actually using different glue, if necessary. Next, get your ribbon cut (we used approximately 8" lengths) and knotted (we tied the ear buds together about half way down). OK, so now you are ready to glue it all together, we did the ipod cover first but I soon realized that it may have been better to start with the ribbon. You can do any order that works for you. Lastly, glue the ribbon to two Reese's cups for the earpieces.

Viola~ ipods!

This was a lot of fun to make, and we actually had a little Valentine Crafting party with my sister and her kids with sledding and mint hot chocolate (which both Sam and his Auntie love). Thanks to Delightful Order for this great idea and the free printable!!

Here are some of the other Valentine's we made:

Let me know if you make these and how they turn out!
