Valentine's Day Flower Suckers

Hey y'all.  I am making these "flowers" for my son's preschool class this Valentine's Day.  These little "flowers" are more personal than store bought cards/candy plus it is a fun activity to do with your kids!

Dum-Dums (or other small suckers)
Red or pink construction paper or scrap booking paper
Glue Stick

Using a stencil, draw and cut out 4 hearts.  These will be your "petals."  Glue together at the bottom, overlapping slightly.  Let dry.  Write name or message on the petals then, using the sharp end of the scissors or a hole punch, make a small hole in the center of the constructed petals and slide a sucker through.    Voila!
These are sure to be a hit (and don't forget to make one for your teacher, too!).
