Lately I’ve been trying to give the girls easy access to our art and craft supplies throughout the day. One way I’ve done this for Valentine’s Day is by setting out card making supplies (paper, stickers, washi tape, doilies, crayons, etc.) and goodness it’s been a hit. I will say that in order to keep my sanity, avoid having rainbow colored walls and not have to watch the girls Libby like a hawk, I don’t leave the crayons and markers out all the time. I simply keep them in a small mason jar on the counter and bring them out when card making inspiration strikes. Let me tell you, there’s been a lot of inspiration, because our dining room table has turned into a mini card factory. Hooray for more snail mail! In the spirit of spreading love, today I’m sharing the perfect Valentine’s Day Card for Kids to Make. This happy and cheerful card is sure to brighten anyones day!

First, you’ll need to download and print out the Colorful Day Valentine’s Card PDF onto heavy cardstock. Use scissors to cut out the heart template. Grab a pencil or your favorite pen and trace the heart onto the contact paper. Use scissors to cut out the heart.

Carefully peel the backing from the contact paper and place the heart over the ‘I hope you have a Colorful Day!’ text. Use your hand to smooth out the contact paper and be sure to press down around the edges of the heart to make sure it’s attached. We don’t want any paint to sneak under there!

*Project Tip:

The prep work for the cards can be done the day before you actually make them to make the process even simpler (that’s what we did—in fact, we spread this project out over the course of a day, hence the outfit changes in the photos). Preparing the day beforehand (or during nap/rest time) is especially helpful if you have eager kiddos who are ready to get started. It also helps you to truly enjoy the process rather than being stressed out that you can’t cut and prep the cards before they lose interest. I may be speaking from experience here 😉

Once you have attached the heart to the paper you’re ready to get painting! You can use paint or watercolors—totally up to you. Once you are all finished painting, set aside your masterpiece so it can completely dry. Once the card is dry carefully peel off the contact paper.

Now you’re ready to assemble the card. Grab some construction paper in your favorite colors. We chose colors that matched the paint colors, but once again it’s completely up to you. Fold the construction paper in half (hamburger wise) and use a glue stick to adhere the painted piece to the construction paper.
