Valentine’s Day really wouldn’t be complete without candy conversation hearts that you swap with your friends. But these days many schools don’t allow candy or food items brought into classrooms. One way to keep the fun of conversation hearts without breaking school rules is by making these conversation pebbles. I saw this idea on Hometalk and now I have no idea who shared it, so I can’t credit them. Sorry!
All you need is a bag of clear, glass gems. I got mine from Dollar Tree so this whole bag was $1.00.
On computer paper, print out whatever words you want to use.
If you want to make colored gems, simply color over a word with colored highlighter.
Place your gem over one of the words and trace it with a pencil.
Cut out your shape.
Then brush a light layer of Mod Podge or a DIY version of Mod Podge on the flat part of your gem. Place your word cut-out over the glue with the word facing the bubble of the gem.
Now you have a fun conversation gem that your kids can swap with their friends.
You can also put them in bowls and use them as decoration during Love month!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
