The assembly of these goodies is fairly easy to allow older children to do it themselves. For the younger children, they may need help with cutting and tying. 

All the children may have to be reminded to save some toys and candies for the actual goody bags, I know mine will be digging into those first. 

  • Cut out the “You Light Up My Life” Valentines from the printable.

Suggestions For Some Customization Of Your Light Up Valentines

You can use glitter glue to add each child’s name to the card. First, use a pencil to lightly write out their name. Then trace it with glow in the dark glitter glue. 

If you find some glow in the dark letters, you can use those to add each child’s name to the card. Use a pencil to lightly mark where to place the letters.

You can outline the stars on the front of the cards with glow in the dark glitter glue too.
