Fast and Easy Toy Car Valentine – Our Boy Life
Big Brother is in his second year of preschool, and this year they’re having a Valentine’s party. Naturally, we wanted to come up with a fun Valentine! I wanted something cute but also something that he could contribute to. There are 12 other kids in his class, and I knew he could lose interest quickly, so I kept it simple. He loved the idea of giving his classmates Hotwheels, so I made a simple design with the phrase “I Am Wheelie Glad We’re Friends”. He decorated them with Valentine stickers and markers, and I fastened them to the Hotwheels card. Simple, quick, and fun! Make Your Own Hotwheels Valentines: Print the “I Am Wheelie Glad We’re Friends” printable on a regular size sheet of colored card stock (8.5″x 11″). See below for printables links. Cut each piece of card stock so that you have four pieces measuring 4.25 x 5.5 inches-the perfect size for a Hotwheels card! Score each of the four pieces at the top of the card, so you can fold it over approximately 3/4 of an inch. This is a nice place for a classmate’s name. Decorate and add names!! You can have your child write his or her name and/or classmates’ names. Now attach each piece to a Hotwheels car. I glued it to the front and then folded the scored section over the top and taped it to the back. You’re finished. Get ready to hand out those Valentines!
