Colorful Valentine Cards
An Activity for Preschoolers:

Crafty, personalized cards to give to loved ones on Valentine’s Day.

Before You Begin:

Provide as many creative materials as possible for this activity. Allow each child to use her/his own creativity in putting together a card. Resist the urge to ‘suggest’ what the child should do.

Activity Goals:

To make a fun holiday greeting card for parents or family members.
To develop cutting skills.
To express personality and individual creativity.

Furthermore:

This same activity can be used for any holiday. Simply change to materials to reflect the current holiday season.


Let's Get Started

STEP 1

Provide cardstock for the child to create a card. You may want to fold the cardstock paper in half to make a card shape. However, folding is not necessary and you have the children create a flat-faced card instead.

STEP 2

Demonstrate how to use Krazy Cut scissors (if the children are developmentally able to use scissors) to make fun and unique patterns to glue on the card.

STEP 3

Have the children add stickers, embossed foil paper, craft tape, and ribbon to personalize.
