Valentine's Day Valentines {Plane Awesome}

This is my first year making Valentine's Day Valentines for my son to take to school. Of course we didn't want anything too girly and they get way too much candy, so I took him to the dollar store (Honk's) to have a look. Luckily, we found six packs of airplanes for a dollar so we settled on a "plane" awesome theme!

Valentine's Day Valentines: You're just PLANE awesome!

We pretty much love them.

Plane awesome supplies:
Toy airplanes
Glue dots
Color printer
White cardstock
Paper cutter
Glue (I used what came with the glitter)
Martha Stewart heart shaped glitter

We printed four of the following image to a page on the cardstock. That is what worked best with our size planes.

Cut out your cards and glue dot the wheels of the planes to the cards.

Draw three contrails (aka the white trails planes leave) from the back of the plane using your glue. Mix multiple colors of glitter hearts in a bowl. Pour the glitter on the glue and shake the excess glitter hearts back in to the bowl.

Voila! You have created a cool kid's Valentine's Day valentine that is just plane awesome!
