Simple Toddler Made Valentines Day Cards
After our latest exploration in painting without brushes, we decided to turn our home made paper into these simple Valentine’s Day cards for the whole family. The amount of independence and ownership my daughter felt over this project was worth any mess my kitchen table endured.
Toddler Valentines Day Cards – Supplies
- White and Pink Stock Paper
- Red Finger Paint
Directions for Toddler Valentines Day Cards:
Start by making your home made paper. This activity is half the fun of making the Valentines Day cards. The goal is to paint an entire piece of paper with paint, leaving a texture or pattern behind with the “brush”. We have been exploring how to paint without brushes (you can read how we painted with qtips here)
Once your pre-made paper is completed and dry, it is time to create the hearts for your Valentine’s Day cards. Depending on the age of your child, you might want to do the tracing and cutting. Use a cookie cutter to trace hearts on top of the dried paint.
Finally, its time to assemble your cards. I like to prep the pre-folded stock paper ahead of time, but you can definitely let your toddler join in on the fun. Your toddler will love this part (or at least mine does). Using a glue stick, attach one heart in the center of your folded card stock.
Now, you have fun and simple valentines that your toddler can be proud of and your family will love! Send them to grandma, grandpa and everyone that loves your little one. My daughter loves to “write” her message in the cards and then we add a few stickers (who doesn’t love stickers?).
