Kids Valentine’s Cards

I was asked by Milah’s art teacher to come in and be a guest teacher.  In that Valentine’s Day is coming up I thought it would be a good idea to do cards with them.  I tried to keep it simple and gave them the option of only two cards.  Here is my sample of the most popular one.

I got the template from Skip To My Lou.  I didn’t add a lollipop to mine though.  Just cut out a large circle with a punch for the head.  I also couldn’t find all red brads for the wing mechanism.  The only thing I could find were red brads with letters on them so I bought red glitter glue and had the kids cover them up.  I also had them cut out plain red circles (using the white piece as a template) then had all kinds of self adhesive glitter hearts for them to add a little bit of shine.  Of course some of the kids took the sample and ran with it, as kids do.  I thoroughly enjoyed watching the more daring ones come up with things like making the wings flap with a pipe cleaner contraption.  That boy was definite engineer material.  Here are some of the kids in action.

Milah going against the grain and doing her own thing entirely.

Leila added antenna with some black card stock.

I had a great time and hopefully didn’t embarrass my daughter too much, haha!!
