It’s another year of handmade Valentine’s Day cards. I’m still trying to keep things simple and fun for my daughter. We have less to make this year (only 22!), which is good because it was a struggle to get through all of the (34!) pencil cards last year.
I enlisted some help from technology for these. She wrote her Valentine’s Day message once, I scanned it, printed out a bunch of little versions, and glued them to the back of these cute heart-shaped notepads. I told her that she could decorate them anyway she liked and she chose to just color in the hearts. That was fine with me. We knocked these out Sunday morning and have plenty of time for her to make a few special cards for friends and family.
notes: I found the notepads at Target in the seasonal aisle. Here are cards from past years:
- pencil cards at age 4
- paper flowers a la Martha Stewart at age 3
- hearts cut from original artwork at age 2
- valentine’s day art at age 1
