Valentine's Day Card

Yes, it's that time again! February has arrived and with it comes feelings of love, visions of pink and red paper hearts, and tastes of rich, delicious chocolate!


In today's activity, share your heart with a crafty card to present to your loved ones on Valentine's Day!


"Heart-Air Balloon" Valentine's Day Card


Here's what you need:

  • 4 pieces of colourful craft paper (pastels of pink, yellow, red, blue or colours of your choice)

  • 1 sheet of card stock for the card

  • Heart shape cookie cutter or free-hand stencil

  • Pencil/Pen/Markers

  • Glue

  • Scissors

  • String *optional


What to do:

  1. Fold 1 sheet of cardstock in half to create a card. Set aside.

  2. Using your heart shape stencil and colourful paper, cut out a total of 4 hearts. We like to use one colour for each heart.

  3. Fold each of the hearts in half, so that the fold is down the middle, creating a vertical fold line.

  4. Take one heart and place some glue on one of the sides. Attach another heart to it.

  5. Repeat until all 4 hearts are connected by one side.

  6. Place glue on the ends of the "string" of hearts and secure it to the front of your card.

  7. Next, using another piece of colourful paper, cut out a "basket" design or simple rectangle. Glue about 2 inches from the bottom of your heart balloon design.

  8. Using a marker or pen, or even a small piece of string, draw a line from the bottom edge of the balloon design to the basket. Repeat with the other side.

  9. Add decorative touches such as clouds, birds, trees or sea!

  10. When completed, write your message of love and send!
