Valentines Day Crafts

My 3 year old daughter’s school introduced the concept of Valentines to the kids and asked the parents to send cards OR gifts for her classmates. Personally I am not very comfortable with the idea of Valentines, especially the hyped up commercial version. But my daughter was all excited as she was told the kids were going to exchange gifts.

Plan was to pick up some cards the day before school. I picked her up from school, fed her snacks and milk in the car and head to the store. My 8 month old was with her father at home, so we were to hurry up. We hit the store, bought other essentials and then went to target to pick up the cards. Just then papa calls from home that the little one has been crying non stop for the last hour or so, and will not be consoled. We scraped the cards plan and headed back home, I promised my 3 year old we can get the cards on our way to school the next morning.

We came home, pacified the little one, ate dinner. We had an hour before bed time, I got the enthu and energy to make home made cards instead of buying them. I asked her if she wanted to do coloring project and she got super excited.

So here it is: [More pictures coming soon]


  • Foam sheets cut into 4 x 6inches rectangles.
  • Sheet to paint
  • Paint
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Pen to write the message


    Paint a plain white sheet. I left it to her and she went wild.
    Cut the foam sheets into 4 x 6 rectangles
    Print out a heart shape that would fit into the rectangle and use this as a base to cut the painted sheet
    Cut the heart shapes, as many as needed
    Glue the painted hearts on the foam sheets. Try different angles. Some crossed, some straight.
    Write the personalized message
    We had one of those pens that make designs when pressed on paper. We had one that had hearts and we used this to decorate the card.

!!We Were DONE!!
