This year for Valentine’s for family I wanted to incorporate both girls. We do photo cards for Christmas so Valentine’s Day is a chance to let Kelsey be involved in the making and sending portions. I love that these finger paint hearts remind me of candy hearts!
I brought out some finger paints and brushes and plain white paper and had each girl paint with one color at a time.
After they all dried, I cut the paper into small squares and then into hearts. If you have a little bit older child, they could do this part themselves.
Then, I laid all the blank cards out on the table and let the preschooler glue the hearts onto the fronts of the cards where she wanted to go. The only supervising I had to do was trying to make sure the hearts were contained on the front of the card or it may not fit into the envelope later.
I printed off a message for the inside and let Kelsey sign her and her sisters name. After the glue dried, we put them in the envelopes and put them in the mail. Of course, I also tossed a picture of the girls in, too.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
