"Hand"-made valentines


This is truly a "hand" made card, created by tracing your child’s hand in a way that delivers a "hearty" message.


  • red or pink construction paper
  • scissors


Start by folding a piece of construction paper in half.

Lay your child's hand down with their thumb and index finger making a triangle against the fold.

Trace their hand lightly on the paper with a pencil and cut out the hand shape, leaving the thumb and index finger fold intact.

Hold the card with the fingers pointing down and open it to reveal a big surprise-a heart-shaped cut-out between the hands.
