This year the little one is going to take valentine cards to her daycare friends for the first time. I wanted to do something where she could participate in the making of the cards, so...
What I did was choose some patterned paper and cut it into hearts. Then I cut white card stock into smaller hearts.
I machine stitched them together and then let N. have a go. I gave her some supplies (red paint, stamps, red and white glitter, sponges, and crayons) and let her decorate them however she pleased.
Each card is one of its kind and made specially by her (well, a lot of it) for her friends. Easy peasy handmade toddler valentines.
