You’re A-MAZE-ing! Simple Photo Valentine with a Maze

My daughter cannot bring candy in with her Valentines so we could not use lollipop Valentines. Instead, we usually use pencils. This year, she wanted something different and we found a bag of inexpensive heart mazes at Michaels. So, we made these “A-MAZE-ing” class photo valentines.

First I took a photo of my daughter holding a giant poster board/oak tag heart. I ‘shopped a clip art hear-shaped maze over the heart. This way, there is a maze even when her classmates remove the plastic maze.

Then, I helped my daughter (over-)embellished it on PicMonkey. A bit on the tacky side but she’s a 6 year old at Valentine’s Day…if that is not a time to break out the bling, I don’t know what is.

Finally, we used glue dots to stick on the plastic mazes.

Ready to go!
