    3.
    Create a one-of-a-kind Valentine

    Here comes the fun part. Take your pictures and trim them into different shapes and then glue them on the colored paper. Now decorate them with whatever items you might have around the house – things like stickers, glitter, plastic jewels, feathers, or markers.

    4.
    Pass them out

    Making them was exciting, but take a look at the smile on their face when they pass them out. Classmates, teachers, friends and family – everyone enjoys getting a personalized Valentine, especially when your child made it themselves.
