Tomorrow is the day of love and hearts, candy and flowers – Valentine’s Day! Are you looking for some inexpensive fun for the kids? Today I’m sharing one simple way to make some homemade Valentines. I used 3 colors of construction paper (red, pink & purple), 2 different sized cookie cutters, a pencil, scissors, glue and a marker. First I traced around the larger heart shaped cookie cutter 3 times on each piece of paper using a pencil. Then I discovered if I turned my cookie cutter over, I could trace around that side and get a slightly smaller heart shape. I filled up the space that was left on each color of paper by tracing around a much smaller heart shaped cookie cutter.
If the kids are big enough to help cut out the hearts, I suggest cutting them apart first to make them easier to handle. More than one child can be cutting at the same time that way too.
Put the hearts into the same size and color groups for ease in putting your Valentines together.
Glue the hearts together in any design you like. Here are some ways that I chose…just to get your creative juices flowing. 😉
Add your own little message or “Happy Valentine’s Day!” to the front of each Valentine. Sign your name on the back and give them to your favorite Valentine. 🙂
Happy Valentine’s Day! 🙂 May your day be filled with sweet surprises and lots of hugs and kisses! And chocolate…LOTS of chocolate! 🙂
