Go Ahead {BURST} My Bubble Valentine

I am really hoping to get kid’s Valentines done early this year.  Sometimes they just want the standard, store bought ones so they don’t draw attention to themselves at school but they both thought these were cool!  Although these balloon Valentines would be great fun, but I know at the schools you have to be careful of latex allergies, so these might be best for personal friends who you know aren’t allergic!

I found the cute spotted balloons at Target. I also used the cut off top of a pop bottle as a wide funnel, colored toothpicks, skinny candy and ribbon.

I put the balloon over the mouth of the bottle funnel.  Next, I inserted a Valentine message and then the candy.   I ended up with a lumpy balloon that I filled with air and tied shut.  Make sure you blow the balloon up enough or it won’t pop properly and the treats will have to be cut out of the balloon!  I made that mistake with the first one I made.

I printed a message to attach to the outside of the balloons and using my X-ACTO knife, I put 2 small slits in the corner and wove a toothpick through.

    I love this idea and including the toothpick with the card is genius. Very cute. Oh, you ad at the bottom of the page didn’t show up until I clicked on it. It was just a blank screen. I guess it was effective because I clicked on it wondering what it was. At first I thought it might be a video showing how to make the craft. Also the sound didn’t work on the ad. Thought you might want to know.

    I made 40 of these for 2 class rooms that I am assigned to. The grade 3 teacher was appalled, but I encouraged the students to have fun, and the grade 2 teacher was laughing along with the students as they burst their balloons. Thanks for this wonderful idea, watching the children`s happy faces was the best Valentines gift ever, for me.
