Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine’s Day from our family to yours! Thank you for following my blog and supporting our family in all that we do! 

Today, I wanted to share with you the fun Valentine’s Day cards we have made for our friends here at the RV park…

We’ve made three different cards for our friends.

“Bee My Valentine”
1. Fold a sheet of construction paper in half.
2. To make the bee…
Trace handprints (Best for a child 1 year and younger, otherwise the bee will be too big.)
Using water colors, have child paint fingers black and palms light blue. Have child paint a sheet of paper yellow. When dry cut out an oval to match the size of the hands. Cut out a semi-circle of black for the head. Have the child glue the yellow oval down. Then, glue the hands with glue on the fingers only so the wings (palms) pop up a little like 3D wings. Then, glue the head at the top of the oval. Have the child add wiggly eyes. Add foam shapes for fun.
3. Inside…
Fold a sheet of white paper in half and lay the child’s hand on the paper with the forefinger and thumb touching the fold to create ½ of a heart. Trace the hand. Cut out the hand, but do not cut the fold where the forefinger and thumb touch the fold. Have the child use water colors to paint. When dry glue inside. The hearts at the bottom are fingerprints.

“Our Hearts Open to Your… Friendship”
1. Fold the short ends of a sheet of construction paper in half. You should have a long rectangle. Then, fold the left side in 1/3 of the way and the right side in 1/3 of the way to make the ends meet.
2. Outside…
Paint the child’s hand and lay the hand on the paper with the forefinger and thumb touching where the edges meet. Paint the child’s other hand and place the hand on the other side to have the edges  meet. Make sure the line up the thumbs and forefingers to create a heart shape in the middle.
3. Inside…
Draw 10 hearts with a pencil across the middle of the page. To do this, I started in the middle and drew 1 heart on each side of the middle. One half of a heart should be on each of the fold lines. Then, have your child tear and glue one color of tissue paper to each heart. It’s ok if the go out of the lines slightly. When dry, use a permanent marker to outline the hearts and write one letter of the word “friendship” in each heart.

“I love you.”
This one was for my sign language teacher here in the RV park.
1. Fold a sheet of construction paper in half.
2. Outside…
Dip your child’s finger in paint and touch the paper four times to create the petals of a flower. Then, use green paint on a paint brush to whisk in some stems.
3. Inside…
Trace your child’s hand and cut it out. Have your child glue them to the card, but do not put glue on the middle and ring fingers. Bend down the middle and ring finger and place a foam sticker heart on top.

Enjoy your special someone!

God Bless Your Learning Days,
