Are you still looking for Valentine cards that are simple enough for your kids to make? Here’s another suggestion for you! We’ll call this one the Soda Pop Valentine card. 😉 You’ll need a piece of paper, glue, a black marker, colored pencils or crayons, a pencil, scissors, a cut out paper heart and a straw.
I used half a sheet of pink construction paper for my card. I folded it in half to make a nice size for a card. On the front, using a pencil, draw a soda pop bottle.
With a thin line marker or black pen, trace over the bottle you just drew so that it stands out more plainly.
Color in the bottom 2/3 of the bottle whatever color you’d like your pop (soda) to be. I used brown for Root Beer. I wrote the words Root Beer on my bottle but you can write whatever kind of pop you like to drink and color it the same color as the drink you chose.
(Sorry I’m not sure why this picture looks purple!) Now imagine that the straw you have is inside this bottle of pop. (soda) Cut your straw to fit the bottle. Have the bottom of the straw just touching the top of the pop (soda) in your bottle. The top of the straw should stick out above the bottle opening.
Add a line of glue down the length of the straw and hold it in place on your card for just a little bit till the glue can start to set up.
If you have a permanent black marker, you can draw the rim of the bottle on your straw too so it looks more like it is inside the bottle.
Now with a pen or marker write the words, “I “soda” love you!” (I sorta love you!)
Next, you should write on the cut out heart these words…”I love you so much I think my heart might “pop”! 😉
Then glue the heart to the inside right hand side of your card.
If you like, you can add some little lines around the outside of the heart to help make the heart look like it’s ready to pop!
And there you are! All finished! Great job! Who will you share your Valentine card with? Remember to sign your name so the person will know you are the one that made this great card for them. 🙂
