Kids Classroom Card Ideas with Washi Tape

As the Director of Product Development for Pear Tree I work with designers to build the best products for our customers. When I’m working on a project for my own family I tackle it the same way. I start with the big picture then define the requirements and finally focus on the details.

Big Picture (theme): Washi tape.
Requirements –
1. My kids would be involved in assembly. (Needs to be easy to do.)
2. My oldest needs to write (in cursive) the names of his classmates. (Needs extra envelopes for potential mistakes.)
3. My daughter could not bring candy. (The “treat” needs to be flexible.)

These are the three Valentine’s Day card ideas for kids that I came up with–easy, mistake proof and flexible!

Materials/Tools:
1. Washi tape
2. Pen
3. Small paper
4. Lollipop
5. Crayons

Variation #1: Lolipop treats
Use the washi tape to add a treat to the front of the envelope and on the back to secure it closed.

Valentine’s Day Myth #2: Off-the-shelf Valentines are the Only Choice for Kids

Nothing irritates the moms at Pear Tree more than having to buy boxed valentines off the shelf for our kids’ classmates. What, we ask, do Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have to do with Valentine’s Day?

Those of us who work for Pear Tree, of course, like to get creative and make our valentines a little more personal—even if they’re just for kids. Because if we do it right, the kids have really cool cards to hand out at school, and we might just have an adorable greeting to send to friends and relatives.
