I bought ONE bag of Hershey Kisses filled with caramel and ONE bag of regular milk chocolate Hershey Kisses.
As a Dollar Tree lover, I was glad I could support the store. I LOVE that I was able to buy 10 bags of bugs for $1.00 each.
Faux Grass (optional)
The bag of bugs included: a lady bug, a cockroach, a wasp, a beetle, and a praying mantis.
While I was blogging, Ty passed by and said, "Man those look so realistic." They really did.
Being I didn't have time to bag it up the way I wanted, I snuck into my gift closet and pulled out some pink, faux Easter grass to help make this Valentine a little more 3-dimenstional.
I used a boring, yet simple zip block bag, per classmate, to deliver the Bugs & Kisses.
The directions are easy peasy: In this order, insert the printable, then the grass and last, gently layer the bugs and kisses on top of the grass.
This Valentine was difficult to photograph because the baggies create a
lovely horrible glare.
The completed look!
If you like this idea and wish to replicate it, I am offering the printable I created to you for free. Just click here to use the printable, for your little one.
One classmate of Jax's is a little terrified of bugs. When Jax passed his Valentine out, I heard him say, "Ewe! I don't want that." LOL!!!!! So....beware.... although this is a clever Valentine, NOT every child may appreciate the creativity that went into it.
