We had a lot of fun making Valentine cards last year! The kids were excited to come up with new fun ideas this year.........
My son really wanted to somehow include surfing in his cards again this year....we visited Hawaii in the Fall and he loved the hang loose/shaka gesture associated with Hawaii and the surfer culture.
We traced his hand onto card-stock paper and glued the finger portion down 'holding' a Pixi Stick. The cards read 'Hang loose Valentine'. He is so excited to 'hand' them out haha!
My husband and I visited Paris this past summer and my daughter has become obsessed with Paris and the Eiffel Tower! I found the most adorable miniature cut out Paris activity on Made By Joel http://madebyjoel.com/2012/01/travel-size-paper-city-paris.html
I love this site--so many amazing activities for kids.
We decided to do her Valentine cards on a bag to include the Paris cut out activity and conversation hearts. We took a photo of my daughter sitting next to 'the Eiffel Tower'......we then edited it using a drawing application. I love her Mona Lisa like smirk in the pic--perfect for the Paris theme!
The cards read..... Eiffel (I fell) for you Valentine--so fun!!
We had so much fun making the kid's cards this year! Happy card making everyone! I hope you have a LOVELY Valentine's Day!!
