Valentine's Day is right around the corner so why not have the kids put together a fun Lollipop Love Bouquet? This simple project is fun to do and makes a great gift for a teacher, grandparent or a special friend.
What You Need:
~ Strip of decorative paper measured to fit around container
~ 6-8 craft sticks or wooden skewers
~ 1 Styrofoam ball
~ Heart stickers or foam cut-outs
~ Valentine's themed tissue paper
~ Lollipops (as many as you want to add)
~ Measure around container and cut a length of paper to fit. Glue (or tape) into place.
~ Cut Styrofoam ball and place into container (add and fill as necessary to give a good strong base).
~ If using Skewers, break in half and use one end to glue (or tape) Valentine stickers or cut-outs to. Repeat.
~ Stick Valentine skewers into Styrofoam inside of tin.
~ Add Lollipops
~ Cut out squares of Valentine tissue paper (plain red, white and/or pink will also work). Scrunch these up between skewers and lollipops to create a ruffled effect.
If you and/or your kids do this project, I'd love to see your pics. Send to; sandieleem @ gmail (dot) com and I will post them here =)
