Stamped Hearts
Stamped heart cards are super easy. Cut a simple sponge into the shape of a heart. Your child then dips the heart in washable red paint and then stamps that sponge onto index cards. Once the paint is dry, you or your child can sign the back of the heart with his/her name. less

Most kids start celebrating Valentine's Day in preschool. You'll likely be asked to have your child bring in a pack of cards to distribute to the entire class. (Don't address the cards! Just identify who sent them.)


And despite how you may feel about Valentine's Day, your kid will be super excited. Why? Because the class has probably been crafting up a Valentine's Day storm.


If you're looking for an inexpensive and easy way to make Valentine's Day cards with your kid(s), look no further. All you need is a pack of blank index cards (you can get a pack of 300 for two bucks!), markers or washable acrylic paint, scissors, and if you want to get fancy, a glue stick, a washable ink pad, and colored construction paper. (All stuff you probably already have, right?)


Fancier still? Pick up some Valentine's Day stamps, felt heart stickers, decorative pencils or lollipops.
