Much to my sister’s delight, this year I volunteered to make my nephew’s Valentines for preschool. The Superhero idea we chose is not a new one and there are versions of it all over Pinterest. Since I had to make 26 of them, I didn’t want the project to be too time consuming. Here are the supplies that I used:
- Yellow cardstock to print out the capes and masks. You can click here and here to get a printable version of both.
- Hole punch
- Lollipops of your choice
After printing out the sheets of capes and masks, I cut them all out. I cut the capes with wavy edges so as to give the illusion that they were moving and then punched a hole at the top. Cutting everything out was by far the most time consuming part. I then gave all the capes to my sister so that Joey could sign his name to the backs. She had him do them in batches so that he wouldn’t get bored. It was great practice for him!Once I had all the components ready, I assembled the lollipops by sliding the capes up the stick and onto the wrappers, and taping the masks in place. What a great Valentine for boys!
