Little Hands

It's so nice to have children make their very own Valentine's cards for the people they love.  What can the littlest of children make when they are not yet capable of cutting or pasting for themselves?  Here is an easy project to do with any child, but very easy to do with the littlest in your home.  Simply trace the child's little hand on colorful paper, and cut the tracing out.  Then add a heart to the middle of the hand and add a special message.  Paste to a piece of paper folded into a card.  Embellish the card in beautiful Valentine's Day fashion.  Remember to put the child's name and date on the back so that it can be a momentum in years to come.  I have a few of these types of cards tucked away in baby books.  When I look back at them they bring such special memories to mind.  Of course this is very simple to do and will make a very special card for Daddy, Mommy or grandparents.  

Happy Homeschooling!   Happy Valentine's Day!
