Valentines Say I Love You

In my opinion, when it comes to Valentines Day, a personal touch goes a long way...and if it's a whole hand, even better right?

This year, I did our Valentines craft with K and also the 2 year old girl I nanny for. Trust me, there was paint everywhere. everywhere. everywhere.
I'm sure you understand.

It took a lot to get a nice clean hand print from my darling child. She prefered to place her painted hands on her face, in her hair, and on my clothes.
But we got the job done!
 Don't worry, the children did not do the cutting. I cut out about 25 little hand prints and then glued the two center fingers down to make the ASL sign for "I love you". 
 On the patchy painted hand prints, I used my finger to spread a thin layer of glue over the top and then just dumped the glitter on. A little sparkle makes everything better!

I put a little magnet on the back and wrote a note to all of K's valentines this year. Even though half of them are her cousins, she's got too many friends already and she's only one!

If you didn't see our Valentines for last year, stop by and check them out. Trust me, they are actually much cuter than this year's but in my defense, I now have a toddler and I've resorted to "simple is better"!
