Fun Homemade Valentine : Star Wars Glow Stick Valentine {No candy}

Remember that I'm Scrooge when it comes to Valentine's Day?  Luckily I'm loving making these Valentines for my boys and I'm starting to enjoy the holiday a little more :)

One of my favorite things about having this blog is all of the other bloggers I have found and seeing the amazing talent you all have.  I especially love when I find the prefect Valentine for my 5 year old!!  Megan from Brassy Apple made a light saber with a glow stick and I knew that I wanted to do just that for him!

This was so easy to do and I love how they turned out!  
This is how I made it:
1) I took a picture of my son, holding his light saber.
2) I then put words on picture 
3) I printed the pictures out and then put a slit at the top of the light saber and inserted a glow stick.  
Crack the glow stick and the light saber actually glows, I love it!!

I also found some Star Wars fruit snacks, so my son will give those to his class also.
