        Heart to Heart with Art

        Talk to your child about Valentine's Day and how important it is to let people know you love and care for them. Tell her that a card she makes herself can show another person how much she loves them. Ask your child who she would like to make a card for.

        Step 1: Things You'll Need

        Collect the items from the materials list.
        Little Hands Tip: Ask your child to name her favorite colors.

        Step 2: Talk about Favorite People

        Have your child tell you why she loves or cares for that person. Write her answer on a piece of construction paper.

        Step 3: Draw and Decorate

        Ask your child to decorate the card or draw an illustration. Ask her to think about the special things that person enjoys and to draw pictures of these things.

        Step 4: Address with Love

        Help her write the name of the person on the inside of the card.
        Little Hands Tip: Have your child sign their own name in their favorite color or with a hand tracing.

        Step 5: Share It

        Give the card to the special person on Valentine's Day—or any day!
