What you’ll need:

  • construction paper or card stock in various colors
  • hole punch
  • ribbon
  • markers or crayons

What you’ll do:

  1. Help your child cut heart shapes — small, medium and large — out of construction paper or card stock in his favorite colors (you don’t have to limit him to red, pink and white).
  2. Punch holes in the top and bottom of each heart except for the last heart, which will only need a hole punched in the top.
  3. “Chain” together the hearts with ribbon. Add a longer ribbon to the top heart.
  4. Write a heartfelt message or let your child color a picture on each heart and you have a card that doubles as V-Day decoration!
