Today's Valentine's Day idea is a whole lot less girly but a lot of fun. The idea is basically to transform a ziploc bag by tracing an illustration on it. Choose something that will definitely put a smile on the receipient's face!

My sons are really into ninjago at the moment so I used one of their books and traced two characters on it. I am thinking of adding speech bubbles too. I think they will like it. You could also save this idea for their birthday or the day of their exam. Just a simple way to show support and love in an inexpensive way.

Materials :
- permanent markers (i used sharpies)
- ziploc bags 
- graphics (from a storybook)

Directions :
1. Place the ziploc bag over the image and trace the outline with the permanent marker
2. Colour the images
3. Fill the ziploc bag with a snack then place it in your child's bag ready for school

Have fun spreading some love this Valentine's Day!
