Each year, my oldest son is very particular about what he wants to give as Valentines to his class. Last year, he described a Lego Valentine that we designed together and it was a hit! For his class Valentines this year, he wanted something that would be fun for both the boys and girls and include the colors of the rainbow but also be “totally rockstar”. We went over a few ideas and when I showed him a bucket of colorful rock candy, his mind was made!Rainbow Rock Candy Valentines

We went very simple with wording that just said “You Rock” to keep with his rockstar request and also keeping the message neutral and not overly lovey. He just LOVED the pun of the rock candy too! I love how simple it is to get a laugh out of a 7 year old.

To make them yourself, simply click on the color(s) you want to use and print. Each sheet prints 4 valentines. I used the valentine color that coordinated with the color of rock candy, but you can mix it up or use your child’s favorite color instead!Valentine Rock Candy

We bought this variety bucket of rock candy from Amazon that came with 9 different colors! You can also find them online from Walmart & Target.

Print out a sheet of valentines and cut into strips. (I printed onto card stock for stability) After your child signs them, fold each strip just above the words and wrap it over the top of one of the rock candies. Staple the paper just below the signature and they’re ready to hand out!

My son is so excited to hand these out to his friends & we hope your kids will love them too!
