Tips for making this Valentine Craft Idea with the kids…

  • use either a low temp glue gun or Fabri-Tac (my glue gun alternative glue). Fabri-tac is instantly sticky and will hold most everything with little wait time. A low temp glue gun will give you no downtime but will get quite warm, so be extra careful around them
  • I would NOT use a high temp glue gun. They can do a lot of damage to the candy wrapper, yourself and the kids.
