hearts for my son’s
preschool class for his Valentine’s party next month. So simple to make and you’ll need just a few supplies to make them.
One sheet of two-sided 12 x 12 card stock or “heavy” decorative paper
Paper cutter or a ruler and scissors
Cut 12 1-in strips
Fold each strip over and make a crease – switching out the different designs on each side
Put 2 glue dots in between the creased area about an inch up
Then flip over sides and place 2 glue dots at the bottom inside to make the heart shape
I wrote “to my friend” on one side and Brody’s name on the other with a small stamp.
uh? I didn’t think I needed to show every step. I hope I’m right.
Just play with it and you’ll figure it out…I promise. I’m still trying
to find a way Brody can help me with this project though. I know it’s
best that we let our little ones get their hands in crafting, especially
when it’s for his friends, but I’m having a hard time with that…he’s such a busy little kid.
I know a lot of you will go out
and buy those darling mini Valentine cards to give out to your child’s
class…and to be perfectly honest I would too if I wasn’t such a crafter by heart
(no pun intended – ha!). I did get away from crafting before Brody came
into our lives, but now that I’m a “Mommie…Again”, I’ve started back
up as I have many reasons now to craft a project!! It’s just so much
fun…and I finally found some time to play!!
Brody likes pink so I’m sure the
other boys will too. I think 4 year olds like
pink…right? They don’t know that pink is for girls unless someone tells
them…right? Pink and Purple are cool colors…Brody tells me!!
Okay, just to be safe, I made blue ones too!!
I also made these cute Valentine treats to go along with the paper hearts. So each child will get one paper heart and one treat.
I was going to have Brody help me put the candy in the bags but something more important came about so Brody left the room…..Scooby Dooby Doo on TV!!!
Enjoy your Valentine’s with your kiddos. I’ve started mine early and since I did perhaps others can have time to make these cute simple Valentine’s cards and treats!!
****Here’s another Valentine Craft I made – these are perfect for teachers, co-workers, your massage therapist…you name it – Valentine Candy Cones
