--classroom valentine--homemade valentine--airplane valentineDo you like the airplane valentines? We put these together with a roll of smarties, a rubber band, and a pair of lifesavers (you can leave them in their individual packaging and just poke a hole through the center if you are making them to hand out to friends.)

These are too cute! I have made something similar to this using Lifesavers instead of Smarties.

Perfect. I have been trying to find Valentines that my boys are excited to give…”no pink. no hearts….etc.” I think this just might make mom & boys happy. Thanks!

Love the tags and those candy airplanes are over-the-top clever! Well done!

Thanks, Whitney! I can’t take credit for the plane idea, though. My kids made them at a town park day here and they made such a big impression we have made them over and over.

hi, love the tags for the airplane valentines how do you get them to all stay together with the gum and life savers etc…

Hi Lisa,
These planes are actually super simple. As long as you get rubberbands that are not too big, not too small, that’s all it takes to hold them together. Just thread it through the two life savers and loop it around the gum. We’ve made them over and over, we like them so much.

I so want to make these – but I can’t get them to come up on my computers. I can print your angel wings – any suggestions. Thanks! I just love them!

Thanks so much for posting! Quick question – where do you get the rubberbands from?

Hi Bernadette,

Thanks so much for your note! The rubberbands I used were just from a standard bag of assorted rubberbands. I just had to sort through and pick out the best ones. If you find a better solution, I’d love to hear!

My great-grandmother used to make these at Christmas and hang them on her tree; anyone coming to visit was to pick one off the tree before they left. She used Tootsie Rolls instead of smarties and wrapped them in Aluminum foil. They look beautiful hanging on the tree, and I’ve put them on presents and they’re adorable there, too! It has been a wonderful tradition – but I never though t about using them for Valentines Day!!

Wow, Audra! Thanks for sharing. That is such an amazing idea. A tree being buzzed around by candy airplanes does sound totally magical.

Terrific idea. What are the pom pom things and how are they attached? I didn’t see a tutorial. I think everyone else figured it out. Thanks, Tana

Tana Steward January 1, 2012 at 3:10 pm

Never mind. I see it is life savers. Oh Duh! Tana

How are the silly bands or rubber bands attached? Really want to make these with my boys!

Reply

AmberLee January 30, 2012 at 10:44 am

hi kira! thanks for the note! The rubber bands just go through both life savers (which you can keep in the wrapper if you like, just poke a hole through the middle) then around each wing. if they are the right size, they stay put perfectly.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this!

These are adorable but we can’t give out any candy that is unwrapped at DS’s school so not sure what I could use instead for the wheels. The gum may or may not be OK. Frustrating rules!

Reply

Tiffany February 10, 2012 at 8:26 pm

My sons school also has a rule about not giving unwrapped or home made treats. Hmmmm, I was just thinking of how I would do the wheels also? Come up with any ideas?

Amy White February 9, 2012 at 3:37 am

How do you attach the tag on the back? are the pom poms just decoration or how are they used

Reply

AmberLee February 9, 2012 at 5:54 am

HI Amy! I tied a string from the tag to the end of the smarties. and ya, the pom poms were just there for fun, they’re not attached in any way.

Thank you for sharing these — I found these on your site last year and my son made them for his Kindergarten class. He loved them so much that even though I showed him a few ideas from Pinterest for Valentines this year, he said, “I want to make the airplanes again!” So we are making them again ;) Great idea!

Reply

AmberLee February 13, 2012 at 5:51 am

Sarah, thanks so much for your sweet note, and for taking a moment to stop by! I’m so happy your son likes them. They have been a hit with my now 6-yr-old too! Happy valentines!

just wondering what the wheels are made from. this is a wonderful ideal for VBS this year!!

Reply

christine May 4, 2012 at 4:48 pm

also, is there anyway to change the tags to say something different?

Reply

AmberLee May 7, 2012 at 12:24 pm

Hi Christine! THe wheels are life savers, very fun. When I send them in the classroom I leave them in the wrapper, and just poke a hole through the center. Good luck!
