Simple Hearts & Kisses Valentine Card

Hearts & Kisses Valentine Card

Valentines Day is celebrated on February 14th and is an opportunity to tell someone you love them.  There is nothing better than receiving a homemade card from your little one and we are going to share some easy ideas on how to make a Hearts and Kisses Valentine card with your youngster.

Hearts & Kisses Valentine's Card

Materials Needed

A large carrot or potato

Some paint – we used red, dark pink and gold

Some white paper or card

A4 gold card folded in half

Parchment paper – (this is optional & you could use white paper or tissue paper)

What We Did

First, we cut the carrot into two and carved out a simple heart shape on one and a simple X shape on the other.

Then we put the paint onto a large plate – you could use a tray or a paper plate.

Dip the carved heart carrot into the paint and press firmly onto the white and/or parchment paper and repeat this all over the paper

Do the same with the carved X carrot.

Leave to dry.

Making the Card

There are different ways that you could construct your card.  The easiest is to just fold the card in half and you have a card decorated on two sides.

Or you could cut out a large heart shape from the printed card and stick it onto a folded gold coloured card.

Finally, if you have used parchment paper you could cut out a large heart shape from the front of your folded gold coloured card and then stick the printed parchment paper behind it – this makes a lovely ‘window’ effect especially when the card is opened.  We actually folded the card with the gold on the inside to create a ‘warm glow’ for our parchment window.
