The girl was home sick from school a couple of days last week, and I was trying to come up with things to amuse her (because she is the least-sick sick kid you have ever seen in your life) so I was casting around for some Valentine things for her to do, since she’s pretty obsessed with the holiday right now.
I found these adorable printables from Crystal & Co. that use dot markers, which was perfect. The girl got some fresh dot markers for Christmas, so she was excited to get to use them on these pages.
This is my favorite. I want to do a million of them with all sorts of different colors, paint, markers, whatever.
She liked it, too, and asked me if she could do some more Valentine’s homework.
It happened that I had been cleaning up some gift bags and tissue paper and noticed there was a lot of red and pink paper hanging around, so I asked her if she wanted to do something with that.
She said yes, so of course I pulled out the contact paper and cut out some heart shapes.
It’s still pretty. This is such an easy little craft and a lot of fun for different ages, too. I don’t know why we didn’t think of it sooner.
Is your kid excited about Valentine’s Day? I’d love to hear what you’re crafting in your house!
