Valentine DIY Paint Kit
When I think of gifts for my kids to give to their classmates I try to find or make gifts that are cute, easy and affordable – AND – let kids be creative! I steer clear of sweets and toys / tchotchke’s that are discarded after opening (by parents mostly ha!).
I found these mini paint palettes and canvases on Amazon. They come in sets of 12 and 24 and are very inexpensive. We are talking under $1 for each! Love that! My sons preschool class is only 11 kids but my daughters second grade class has 21 students. Buying gifts for all those kids adds up quickly. I try to keep classmate gifts under $3 each and still make them meaningful.
The tag is extra special to me. I asked my friend Karli of Wink and Ink Papery to make a cute tag to go with the gift and I think she nailed it. The file is available to download on her Etsy Shop. I have a home printer and print them on bright white cardstock. If you don’t have a home printer, you can also have them printed at Walgreens, Fedex, or an office supply store like Staples.
I used yarn I had on hand from Hobby Lobby to tie it all together. You can use any yarn or ribbon you want and then have your child add their name. So easy it’s foolproof! My kids are really excited to gift these to their friends and I hope y’all love this as much as we do!
