Creative Valentines

The kids are big on paper art–scissors, tape, staples, and paper become 3-D houses, bunny mazes, paper dolls and animals, airplanes, cars… and  reams of leetle itty-bitty scraps of paper left behind on the floor.  It’s no surprise that they’d much rather make their own valentines than buy pre-printed ones.  We’ve learned to give the girls at least a week to make their work-intensive valentines, otherwise we get the first few masterpieces, and then the hurried slap-dash last 20 the night before (devastatingly easy to tell which kids are their faves).
Here are some great ideas for homemade valentines:http://www.allfreecrafts.com/valentine/valentinecards.shtmlhttp://www.thetoymaker.com/Holidays/Valentines/1Valentines.htmltoymaker1.jpghttp://www.enchantedlearning.com/crafts/valentine/heartgarden/http://www.artistshelpingchildren.org/valentinesdayartscraftsideakids.html
