There are so many creative Easter egg ideas out there. In addition to using eggs to learn during Springtime, we are excited to find some new ways to make some pretty eggs for hiding and hunting. Here is a super simple and fun Easter egg idea. All you need are Mod Podge and some pretty party napkins.

Creeper Valentines

Creeper Valentines with free printable messages from Creekside Learning

Do you have a Minecraft fan in your house? I have three and my main “miner” requested creeper themed Valentines this year.  These are so easy, kids can make them and I have a free printable for you, too.

Supplies needed:

  • black electrical tape
  • green construction paper, cut into 3×3 inch squares
  • printer and white paper for the message
  • glue
  • scissors or paper cutter

Minecraft Valentine Supplies

Electrical tape is so inexpensive! I bought a package of 10 rolls for less than $5 at Home Depot.  Cut squares of tape for the eyes and a smaller rectangle shape for the nose.  For the mouth, cut a rectangular strip of tape and cut a small section out of that to form the shape of the mouth. This was the only part my kiddos needed help with.

Print out the messages and glue them on the back.   Click here for the Creeper Valentines  free downloadable pdf file.
