How To Make Easy Minecraft School Valentines









....buy them.


I am not a big crafter. I know there are other people who aren't big crafters. So. This is a post for you. It's even a post for crafters who aren't in the mood to make Valentines.


To make the card for a Valentine's Day party at school, go to Tiny Prints. Oh, and no, this isn't a sponsored post, nor am I getting paid for any affiliate links. Click here for the Minecraft options. You'll see the one Natalie has. I picked the 25 cards option since she has 24 people in her class. They are under $20. Then I personalized them with her name, put in my credit card info, and I was done.




Then I decided, hey, let's get the kids chocolate too because I love chocolate. We kept with the Minecraft theme and found a woman on Etsy who made chocolate Minecraft wrappers. She's called TheWrapperPress and the Minecraft wrappers were found here.




I admit, when they arrived I thought I wouldn't be able to wrap the chocolate properly. I thought I'd mess it all up. I won't lie, I didn't wrap them as nicely as I should have. I sort of slapped everything together. But they still look fine!





And now we're done. The teacher says NOT to label them with children's names AND Natalie doesn't have to sit and sign 25 Valentines now since they're personalized. This means I don't have to hear her whine about having to sign 25 Valentines like I did last year. ("My hand hurts." "My fingers are cramping." "Can you just finish?" "Maybe I'll sign it with a N and leave it at that.")


I didn't leave the teacher out. She'll be getting this:




I figure her students will be hopped up on sugar because of the party, so she could use her own chocolate to cope.


Do you go for easy Valentines?

    1. Yes, Etsy gets me in trouble. It's like Target but in the internet world.

  21. These wrappers are definitely easy to do. The kids just bring in simple Valentines and have a party so we don't go all out for the Valentines.

    ReplyDelete
  22. The Minecraft is an awesome wrapper! So creative.....I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. This is so cool. I think the kids will love them. Minecraft is so in vogue right now. I had to admit that I would just give chocolate and be lazy about it :))

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  32. I don't have a little one at home any longer, but I have seen the craze with minecraft. I bet there are a lot of kids who would love this!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Haha! Love it. These are adorable. This is our first year doing valentines (it's my oldest's first year in school), so I'm not sure what we're doing. He said he was going to make valentines, but I have a feeling that won't happen.

    ReplyDelete

  42. This is such a cute Valentine's Day craft. Although I do not have little children anymore, I will share this with a friend who owns a pre-school. She and her little students would have lots of fun with this.

    ReplyDelete
  43. This is such a lovely idea for the kids! I think it's super easy as well. It would be nice to make this even at parties as a giveaway to the guests.

    ReplyDelete
  44. What a great idea and really sweet that they get presents for all the kids in the class! Thoughtful of you to think of the teacher too!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  47. This is so cute!! i love this idea <3

    ReplyDelete
  48. ROFL, maybe also include one of those travel sized bottles of alcohol, for after school of course. The Minecraft candy wrappers are cute too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. This sure does look easy. I'm all for the printouts, however, I would have still had her sign her name. Our daughter is almost five now, but after Christmas, my wife sat down with her and had her write out thank you letters to practice her writing. I practice writing with her almost every day too. I guess I also didn't catch how old your daughter was either, but learning to serve others is still a great way to teach compassion and giving! Love the minecraft theme as well though!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hahaha, you make it look so easy! I have to try :-)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Omg this is so precious! What a wonderful, unique touch to Valentine cards. I would love to receive one of these.

    ReplyDelete

  53. What I really like is you try your very best to let the children enjoy these activities. I know it's not easy always

    ReplyDelete
  54. Our kids LOVE Minecraft so these would be perfect. I'm quite the crafter but it still doesn't stop me from finding things that can save me time. I love that you have something for the Teacher too.

    ReplyDelete
  55. My son is a certified minecrafter. I'm sure he'll only be so thrilled to help out if I ask him to help me do this.
