Monster Push Pop Valentines




Adrianne, this post is dedicated to you! Thanks for the inspiration - you know what I mean :)

Valentine's Day crafts are in full effect and I have some fun crafts lined up that are geared more for the boys :) Valentine's Day doesn't have to be all about hearts and flowers, why not throw in some monsters?! Your little guys will fall in love with these Monster Push Pop Valentines!


First you will need to locate some plastic push pops. I got mine at a fantastic local party store called Fancy That. But you can also purchase them on Amazon (see link at bottom of post). 

Next, Fill your push pops with M & M's. I bought a 19oz bag and separated out the colors.

Print out these free printables I created (or create your own) and cut out the Valentine message and the matching horns/antennae. I used a piece of scotch tape to secure the paper to the outside of the push pop.

Lastly, you will need goggly eyes and some white paper to cut out triangle teeth. I got my goggly eyes (also called wiggly eyes) from Craftprojectideas.com. I liked how the package had more than just the standard eye. Some were different colors and others had eyelashes. They really give my monsters some character!  I used a small dab of hot glue to secure the eyes and paper teeth to the outside of the push pop.



Now you are done!! These make a great valentine for your child's class or a fun party favor.

If you want to display them, you can stick them in a block of styrofoam (I used floral styrofoam blocks) stuffed inside a bowl.
