Handmade Valentines

Shane and I made some valentine's together this past week to send out to a handful of friends and family.

First we made these cute Valentine Hugs that we sent to the Grandparents. I was even able to get Adalyn to sit still so I could paint her hands.

Then we used 3 12x12 pieces of cardstock and put a bunch of paint in the middle and folded the paper over. When we unfolded the paper we got cool designs (I know this technique has a name, but I can't think of it).

Then I cut the paper out into heart shapes. Shane has been working on writing his name, so this gave him good practice on signing it on the back of each one. 

Quick, easy, cheap and cute = the perfect preschooler/toddler activity.

Happy Valentine's Day!!
