Optional: stickers, glitter and other embellishments Instructions:
Trace your child's hand print on construction paper or scrapbook paper.
Carefully cut it out.
Bend down the middle two fingers of the hand to create the American sign Language sign for "I love you"
Cut out a large heart from red paper (or paper of your choice) and glue the hand to the heart.
embellish as desired,we LOVE glitter! apply this to a greeting card (folded piece of white construction paper) or a gift bag of contrasting color to create a custom made one of a kind valentine.
Valentine's Day is a craft gold mine. You could make anything, decorate it in pink and red hearts - and maybe some paper doilies - and you've got instant love-gushing goodies. The extra bonus is that imperfection is just fine. No one cares about showing glue or crooked edges, which makes it ideal for playing with techniques that might be new to your kids.
Kids can create Valentine's Day collages or cards with these adorable valentine clipart images. Some Great Valentine graphics for home, gift giving and the classroom. Our valentine crafts are complete with easy printable craft instructions. (and a picture for those visual learners). Valentine wallpapers for your desktop.
Over the years, I have evolved and grown into my job as a mother, as my family has evolved and grown in size. With each child, my world changed, not only in mathematical terms but also in dynamics, imagination and creativity!
In addition to making sure each child gets some undivided mommy attention, playing dolls, reading books, cars, blocks, cooking and sewing etc...I allow them to explore their world and focus on creating kids crafts and art projects that cater to their current interests.
So this website grew from a place to store all our holiday kids crafts to one that shows off our home school learning crafts on the topics of the kid's choice.
The children in turn have become creative designers and are working on their own craft ideas, personal interest websites and business blogs. Yes, they are only in elementary school. However, in this house we focus on each child choosing a business to explore and create.
