This is one of my favorites to receive as a grandparent. The double handprint captures their little hands in a snapshot of time and is a very personalized valentine. All you need is some construction paper, markers and glue. We made several different versions.
My grandson and I made these valentines for his Mom & Dad and brother, his other Grandma & Grandpa, a Great Grandma & Great Grandpa, and one for each of his Aunts and Uncles.
I had him put both hands on the construction paper, touching his first fingers and his thumbs. I drew around them. When I got to his thumbs, I rounded it a little to get the heart shape I desired. Then, cut them out, and we glued them on another piece of construction paper. It was quick and easy! And, I love mine. It’s on my frig!

3.Valentine Heart Pencils
What a great valentine for kids to give to their teachers! Jamie at Simply J Studio provides great instructions. All you need is some yellow cardstock, pink cardstock, aluminum foil, ribbon, pack of Rolo’s and a Hershey’s Kiss for each pencil.
Jamie’s printable download isn’t working, but I found one with clever writing messages from Leanne at Organize and Decorate Everything.
