Send a Valentine's Day Hug

The little man and I had a lot of fun putting together his Valentine's Day cards for the grandparents and great grandparents. I saw this idea on Fun Family Crafts last year and thought the grandparents would go nuts over it! (And I was right!)

Materials and supplies

- Cardstock
- Paint
- Paint brushes
- Ribbon
- Letter stickers
- Hot glue gun or adhesive
- Scissors

How to make this

1. Paint the outside of the card. 

We had a lot of fun doing this! I set up some masks (using heart punches and other cut outs of hearts), so the little guy could paint and I could remove the masks after he was done and have some blank shapes.

2. Find some little hands to paint!

I used a foam roller to cover his hands in paint, then pressed his hands onto the papers. I repainted between each hand print.

3. After the paint dries, cut around the hand prints.

4. Take the ribbon and measure the length of a hug. 

I had him spread open his arms, then measured from wrist to wrist.

5. Glue the ribbon to the back of each hand.

6. Use the letter stickers to write your chosen message.
