These Washi Tape Valentine Bubbles are a great way to celebrate in the classroom without candy!
If you're a fan of non-candy Valentines, these Washi Tape Valentine Bubbles are an easy, frugal project to do this holiday.
My girls and I were able to make a whole class worth's of bubble Valentines in a half hour for under $6.00–that's my kind of project!
I've recently fallen in love with Washi Tape, a Japanese paper tape that's trending all over the blogosphere. It is easy to work with and comes in all different colors and patterns.
One of my 6-year-old twins is really loving it. She has some dexterity issues but has been very successful decorating with Washi Tape (see our homemade gifts for the holidays).
Materials for Washi Tape Bubble Valentines
- Bridal Bubbles (from the wedding section of the craft store or Dollar Tree)
- Washi Tape (find it at Target, the craft store, or online)
- Valentine stickers
- fine-tip Sharpie
How to make Washi Tape Bubble Valentines
To make each one, just cut a strip of Washi Tape and wrap around the bubble bottle. Place a sticker on top.
We added the girls' names to the bottom of each bottle with a fine-tip Sharpie. You could also be a little fancier and do a tag with a little extra tape. I chose to keep it very simple!
With each child making 25 Valentines for their class, I love having a quick, simple project like this.
- Wrap a strip of Washi Tape around each bubble bottle.
- Place a Valentine sticker on the top of each bottle.
- Add your child's name to the bottom of each bottle with the Sharpie.
