Super simple valentine cards

With everything that has gone on lately I wanted a simple valentine card for the children to do, and this fitted the bill for me.

What you need
•card
•roll of paper
•glue
•decorations, I used hearts.

First draw round your child’s hand or ask then to do it. For this step it is possible and pretty for them to do hand prints with paint but I didn’t want the mess.

Cut these out so you have 2 hand prints.
Next you need to unroll your paper out and mark off the length of your child’s arms plus a little bit extra for gluing.

Cut a strip of paper around 2cm the length of your child’s arms.

Once cut fold up in folds that will fit inside your child’s hand but make sure the 2 end pieces are pointing the SAMs direction.
Next glue these to the handprints.

Now here is the best bit get to work decorating them.

We used crayons and colourful paper I had cut up into hearts.

All of the children liked this bit.
As a rule I never write in the children’s cards they make unless they ask me so Izlles was the only one who did this next bit.
On the front hand write “I love you”

On the strip of paper in the middle write “this much”

Then on the back who it is to.

As Posy and Puppy didn’t want me to write in their cards they glued hearts inside and Posy wrote some of the sounds she has been learning at school.

The only thing I will write on them is the date so in years to come we know when we made these.

Izlles age 6
Posy age 4
Puppy age 2.5
Jakey age 10 months

Please excuse my spelling but I have dyslexia and do my best. Please don’t hesitate to correct me.
Thank you.
