DIY Crafts: Valentine Treats

Try making your own candy this year.

  • Grades: PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5

Heart to Heart

Instead of having students exchange store-bought Valentine’s candy this year, help them make their own festive conversation hearts. Students will practice measuring, following directions, and, of course, brainstorming clever messages. You can also have them make scientific observations about what happens as you mix the simple ingredients (including gelatin and powdered sugar) together.

This DIY treat also makes a great gift to send home to families or share with support staff at your school. For the full recipe, click here.
