DIY Valentines for Preschoolers

Hold onto your hats, folks, ’cause we’re about to turn up the cute factor to eleven!

Say cheese and strike a pose—it’s time for some photo flower power! First, have each kiddo pose with their hand in their air as if they’re holding a balloon.

Once you’ve printed the photos, make a small slice above and below the hand in the photo. (Be sure to do this on a cutting board, and of course this part is for the grown-ups!)

After that you can slide something into the hand in the photo! We put flowers in each hand, but you could also slide in a pencil, pen, lollipop, or anything else!

Finally, add in some heart-melting messages like “Blooming with Love,” and you’ve got yourself a guaranteed heart-stealer!
