You don’t always have purchase store bought Valentines, handmade Valentines can be a lot of fun to create and the gratification your little one will exudes when finished is amazing. Last year my 7 year old daughter took a huge interest in drawing so she asked if she could draw and create her own Valentine cards. I love the little artist/crafter she has become, so I was excited to help her. Making Kids Handmade Valentines is not only rewarding for your kiddo but rewarding for your pocket book too.
The first thing I had my daughter do was create a drawing of what she wanted her Valentine’s to look like. She simply used plain white paper, colored pencils and black sharpie. I had my daughter outline her drawing with a black sharpie to make the picture pop. Then, I took her picture and scanned it into the computer and resized the drawing to 3 x 3 square.
Once, I had all the pictures on the page (it was about 8 per page) I printed out 30 for the class and cut them into 3 x 3 squares. Next, we cut red card stock into 4 x 4 squares and glued the pictures onto the card stock. My daughter then signed the back of the card for her classmates. Simple and easy to execute.
It seems like now a days a valentine isn’t good unless it has candy so you can punch a hole in the corner of card stock and attach it to a lollipop with string or just tape or staple a piece of candy to the Valentine. Now, you have a Valentine that every little one will love.
