Heart jar valentines card

Valentines day is the time of the year where we show those closest to us how much we love and appreciate them. For me, I think its a great holiday for children. It teaches the importance of expression and appreciation of those who deserve it. Personally I don’t think there is any better valentines gift than a handmade card; it doesn’t cost much to make and the effort that goes in to it means more than anything you can buy. This heart jar valentines is so sweet and easy to make. its great for older children to practise using scissors and as a sticking activity for smaller children.

You will need

Coloured card
Coloured paper
Glue
Scissors
Markers

To start, take your piece of card and fold it in half. Cut the shoulders of your jar in to the top of your card.

Take the paper you are going to use for the lid and cut out two equal rectangles. Glue the first to the front of your card. Now, flip your card over and line the second one up on the back. This will help weigh it out so that your card can stand easily.

Now for the fun bit! Cut out several coloured hearts and stick them down all over your jar.

To finish of your card simply add your own super cute message to the lid. All that’s left to do now is to write inside and give your card to someone special!
