Top Ten Valentines for BOYS (who hate girly Valentines)

Do you have a little guy who is 100% all boy who loves to get Valentine treats but HATES to make Valentine's cards or projects that he considers girlish?  We've got a top ten list for you!

1. Squawk Boxes:  Most of our "Squawk Boxes" have boyish versions and several have "squawks" (phrases) that don't imply any kind of love.   Your son should really like the king, alligator, viking, super hero, and robot but there is plenty more to choose from.  Get in either a Graphics Set (just print and go) or Cut set (requires a cutting machine and a little more work)

See how to make a "Squawk Box" into a box to hold your Valentines.

JoAnna shows you how to make the Squawk Box Alligator
2. Objects of My Affection:  Are you the healthy mom who tries to avoid giving kids sugar?  Then Objects of My Affection is the set for you.  All the elements in these sets pair perfectly with cheap gifts you can buy at Dollar Stores or if need be, don't even include a gift. Most of these are just right for you your boy!

3.  Hooked on You:  This set is "O-"Fish"ally" perfect for both boys and girls. Just bag up some Swedish Fish and cut out the Hooked On You fish bowl tent. And print out the graphic to make some fast easy tags.

4.  Be My Matey:  ARghhhtt blahhh blahhh

7. Eat Your Heart Out:  This new collection is sure to be a favorite for anyone who loves treats (namely everyone).  From chips to cheese and many sweets, we've got your favorite food puns so you can say Happy Valentines Day and give a little snack to go with it.  Most importantly, there are plenty of puns that your son won't be embarrassed by.

8. Big Bad Dad:  Don't let the name fool you.  This collection is rough and tough product that is "boyish" enough and is perfect for him to show someone they "rock".  Check out what crafter, Jin did with her cassette tapes:

9.  Hogs and Kisses:  What boy doesn't love a pig or hog?  At least they like to eat like them!  Make this adorable Hog Box.  Tips for boys who have an aversion to pink:  Use brown or grey paper or let him smudge some real mud on the box!  Check out Joy's tutorial:

10:  Bug-a-boo:  Worms, snails, and bugs!  The staple of a boy's summer play!  Use the Bugaboo Collection to make these great Valentines and maybe pair it with a bag of gummy worms and say "I dig you".
