Valentines Card

I sure hope my parents enjoy handmade (by 3 year old) cards, because they tend to get a lot of them. This year, we made a mosaic type card and K was so excited to do the glue himself :).

I cut out a heart on the front panel of a card. On the inside front of the card, I traced the heart.

K tore apart Valentine’s colored bits of paper from a magazine and glued them (with a glue stick) inside the heart I traced.DSCN4883

When the glue was dry, he colored on the inside of the card, and I transcribed what he wanted to say to Grandma and Grandpa and we put it in an envelope ready to mail.DSCN4886

One reason I really enjoyed making this card was that the front could still look neat with the heart outlining the mosiac K had made on the inside. Another plus was that this card was not terribly messy to make and allowed K to do it all on his own. :).
