If your little gamer wants to be connected to his gaming system 24-7, then these Video Game Valentine’s Day Cards are sure to be a hit!
I have an 11 year old boy who isn’t interested in sports. So you know what he is interested in? Looking at a screen, all.day.long. He likes to read, but only if I can tear him away. I found that if I get him books about Minecraft, Zelda or whatever other game he’s into, he’s more likely to read it. It can even be fictional stories with those characters, and he just eats them up. When these cute Video Game Bookmarks came up on Oriental Trading Company, I knew that he and his friends would love them!
Video Game Valentine’s Day Cards
These are super easy to put together, and your child/tween can totally help/do it themselves! Use a paper trimmer or scissors to cut out the video game Valentine’s Day cards.
Use a hole punch to punch a hole in the corner of the cards. I like my crop-a-dile when having my kids do a project like this because I can set the depth for the hole. They can’t put it too far in or too close to the edge if you show them how to do it. Works, awesome!
Next you just undo the ribbon on a bookmark half-way.
Then slide the valentine card onto the ribbon, either on top or under the bookmark. You can choose, I think either way is great, totally a matter of preference. Finally just pull the strings back through the loop and let your child write out their friends and their names on the bottom.
Hopefully the bookmarks are video game centered enough that they will still feel like they are connected to the game while reading! ha!
