An Invitation to Create Valentines

Classroom valentines created and distributed. Mission accomplished.

This year, I put together a few supplies and presented them to my second grader.

I added a few new items to the creative supplies and they were a hit!

She was very excited to try out the heart shape paper punches and the scissors that cut fancy edges.

Together, we decided to cut the 8.5" x 11" sheets of red cardstock into 4 pieces.

We have all been under the weather at our house lately so we decided to cut down on the handwriting and put our printer to use. We typed up a simple greeting and printed it in red on white paper. She cut out the greetings using the Edgers Scissors.

After punching out many hearts, she set to work assembling the cards.

With very little assistance, she completed the task of creating 24 valentines and enjoyed the process.

Happy Valentine's Day from our house to yours!

Our Supplies:

Red cardstock

Construction paper - red, pink, patterned

Stickers - We had some reward stickers that were left over from a workbook and many of the sayings were perfect for a valentine greeting. We also had some various heart stickers that were added to the mix.
