Homemade Valentine Cards for kids to make have to be Fun, Funny and Easy.
Here is why...
As a child I got many Valentine's Day cards. But I can only remember one. It was handmade Valentine's Day card by my friend. It stuck in my memory for the rest of my life. I believe it was 26 years ago.
It was funny, unique and touched my heart because it was homemade and even to a young girl it seemed that that boy pored his heart to make it instead of buying it. I remember being very impressed by him and his card.
I told my daughter this story and she really wanted to make some homemade valentine cards as well that are funny and cool.
Every time we need an idea for a craft or an activity in our house the brainstorming usually happens in front of our recycling center (yes, we do have a mini one where we keep all the items that should be placed in a recycling bins and taken away, instead we are trying to use them AGAIN for our crafts and what not).
For this Homemade Valentine Card you will need:
- 1 plastic bottle top (preferably red color)
- valentine's day card free printable
- scissors or craft knife
What to do:
- Print the card (there are 2 cards available on each paper sheet, so you will need to cut in half and fold it)
- Mark the bottle top so you know where to cut.
- Cut it out the marked circle.
- Glue the bottle top on the bottom of the card.
Now it is up to your child what kind of love will he/she put inside the card.
Sky is the limit:
- glitter art
- glued face pictures
- heart drawings
- I love you
Homemade cards are the best, don't you agree?
