{You Can} DIY Valentine’s Day Cards

The tot and I made these very simple Valentine’s Day Cards!




















What you need:

– Blank cards or card stock (target has blank cards with envelopes in stationary section)

– Craft paper, scrap paper, construction paper

– Glue

– Paint

– Plastic or paper plate

– Sponges (make-up sponges work great)

– Scissors


Step 1: 

– Cut out shapes and have your tot glue them to the cards (I did a lot of helping with the placement)








Step 2:

– Add paint to plastic plate, and let tot paint the cards with fingers and sponges.

– I also help make some hand print on some of the cards.















Step 3:

– After paint dries finish with fun sayings, poems, quoits, and a signature.

– Clean-up is easy: wash of plate and sponges to use again, or just toss out and start new next time
