Heart Animal Valentine’s Cards

Be the Best Nanny Valentine's CardsCreative Wednesdays

Kids love making and receiving Valentine’s cards for Valentine’s Day on February 14. Make plenty of Valentine’s Day cards for family, classmates, and friends.

We traced different sized heart-shaped cookie cutters on holiday colored construction paper to make these animal Valentine’s cards. Have the kids use their imaginations to use the different sized hearts to create animals. Here is how we made a cat, panda bear, and butterfly.
