While wandering through the craft store a couple weeks ago I happened upon a lot of Valentine's Day merchandise with the term "love bug." Although it was all pretty cheesy and very girly, it inspired this years non-candy version for Owen's 1st grade class. Owen is all boy so the idea of handing out plastic bugs to his classmates thrilled him.
With Lindsay's help I created the jar printable. You'll also need to gather some plastic bugs and some kind of adhesive. We used This to That. A double sided super sticky tape from American Crafts which works incredibly well.
To assemble simply cut out the jar printable, attach a bug with the adhesive and have your child personalize with his/her name.
