Valentines Day Craft

Valentines Day Lollipop Flowers

Directions:

1) There are two different style lollipop flowers you and your children can make for Valentines Day. You can see both in the photos below. We have the one that is a heart flower lollipop and the other is an actual flower lollipop. With different colored construction paper you can make a variety of different kinds and colors to give out. First you will need to draw the design you want to make with the lollipops. For the heart one we use traditional red. All you need to do is cut out a heart that is a little larger the size of the lollipop so you can see it from behind the candy. A great way to be sure your hear is symmetrical is to fold the construction paper in half and draw half the heart so when you cut it out both sides match perfectly. To make the flower petals you can have your children just draw a simple flower shape, or if you want to get fancier draw and cut our individual petals.

2) Once you have cut them out from the construction paper you are ready to apply them to the lollipops. Using your glue stick or tape if you do not have any affix your hearts and petals to the back of the lollipops. We used some hardcover books to place on top of the Valentines day lollipops to help them hold together while the glue stick dried.

I also think it is a cute idea to have them write or draw a little note on the front side of the flowers before attaching it to the lollipop!
