Have your kids make their own Valentine's Day cards this year.
Red construction paper
Tissue paper (different colors)
White glue thinned with water
Paint brushes, marker
Have your toddler help you tear the tissue paper into 2 inch pieces. Cut the construction paper into large heart shapes. Have the child brush glue on the heart shape and stick on the piece of torn tissue paper. He may choose to cover the whole heart by overlapping the tissue or by leaving spaces in between. When it is dry, print a message and the child's name on the heart using a marker, then have the child give it to his "valentine".
