"Valentine, You're the Apple of My Eye" Free Printable

Posted by Heather at Friday, February 14, 2014

Having a child makes the holidays just a little more special.

Take, for example, Valentine's Day. In the past, this holiday hasn't meant much to me. Hubby and I aren't known for extravagant displays of gifts and/or cards on Hearts Day. Instead, it's more like, "Oh, we need a new car battery? Well, Happy Valentine's Day!" (True story- Happy Valentine's Day 2014!- we're so romantic ;-P)

However, now that we have Lil' Miss and Lil' Miss is in Preschool, Valentine's Day is a slightly bigger deal. Valentine's Day for the Preschool/School-Aged set means Valentine's cards and goodies!

While thinking of something for Lil' Miss to hand out to her friends, I'm constantly reminded of her current obsession, My Little Ponies. I mean, Twilight, Cadence and the whole of Equestria are staring me in the face every time I walk into Katy's playroom! (If you have a MLP fan in your midst, you can sympathize).

SOOOoo, I perused Pinterest for cute Valentine's sayings and stumbled across this idea, using Gogo Squeez, by the Funky Polkadot Giraffe. Bingo! One of the main MLP characters is named Apple Jack. As her name implies, she lives on an Apple farm and loves everything apples. Apple sauce, Apple Jack- a perfect pair!

With the help of Hubby (Brony by default ;-), we came up with some cute little 2" circles that featured Apple Jack and said, "Valentine, You're the Apple of My Eye." Then, I punched out the circles with my trusty hole punch and attached them to the applesauce pouches with ribbon. For the teachers- since I'm assuming that squeezy applesauce is not their thing ;-P- I used the same circles but attached them to some apple-shaped reusable bags.

Voila! Happy Valentine's Day 2014!

For those of you equally enamored with My Little Ponies, Friendship is Magic, I've shared the circles below as a free printable. Just click on the image, save to your computer and print. Happy Hearts and Hooves Day! ;-)

**Sadly, due to Snowmageddon 2014, Katy doesn't have school, today. So, she won't be able to hand our her Valentines to friends. So sad!
