“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.

Need a few valentine slogans for your “hand” made creations? Try these messages:

Outside: Gotta hand it to you, Valentine… Inside: You’ve got my heart!

Outside: You’ve won me over, Valentine… Inside: Hands down!

Outside: I have something to give you, Valentine… Inside: My heart belongs to you.


Start by folding a piece of construction paper in half.

Lay your child’s hand down with their thumb and index fingermaking a triangle against the fold.

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

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