Want to do something a little different for Valentines this year? How about making these lick-and-stick stickers with your child to give to all their friends! After all, every child loves stickers…especially ones that they can lick first. :)
I used the idea we originally used to make penguin lick-and-stick stickers to make this special Valentines treat!
Here’s what you’ll need: Jello (any flavor), clip-art hearts printed on cardstock, boiling water, and a paintbrush or basting brush.
|1. Print the clip-art onto cardstock. You can download the clip-art sheets I created (using Microsoft Word) here.|
|2. Boil the water. Obviously, this is a step you should not let your little one help with.|
|3. Mix 2 Tablespoons boiled water with 1Tablespoon Jello.|
|4. After cooling for a minute or two, let your little one paint the mixture on the back of each clip-art page.|
|5. Let dry for a few hours.|
|6. Once dry, cut out individual stickers.|
|7. (optional) Put a dozen stickers in the center of 1/4 sheet of tissue paper. Wrap up and tie with a ribbon to give to friends, classmates, and neighbors.|
|Just be sure to tell your little Valentines that they’ll need to lick the stickers first to make them adhere!|
