Dollar Store Kazoo Valentines


The last few years our family has made non-candy Valentines for their classes. WE have made healthy changes and, honestly, it's just too much candy regardless. This year inspiration struck at the Dollar Store (Dollar Tree to be exact). These little baggies of kazoos came with 12 to a package. Each of my girls has 25 kids in their class so we bought 5 packages (so we would have some leftovers for church/neighborhood friends). 60 Valentines for 5 bucks?! Sounds good to me!

- package of Kazoos (from Dollar Tree)
- clear scotch tape
- printed cards
- paper trimmer (or scissors)

1. Print pdf of cards.  
2. Trim first at 4-1/4", directly down the middle.
3. Trim remaining edges around each card.
4. Pull 1.5-2"  long piece of scotch tape. Place tape unto kazoo right behind "spout" (what in the heck would you call that sticky-up part of the kazoo?).

 5. Place kazoo on card and press tape down the sides until they meet the paper, then smooth outward.
I hope this gives you some good ideas for Valentines!  My kids are really excited to give them out!

Very creative! This is awesome and perfect for the kids! I really loved the materials you put to complete the features this kazoo. We did a DIY Kazoo project out of the same materials you used. You should check it out! :) DIY: Kazoos
