With Valentine’s Day next month it’s time to start thinking about those Valentine Day cards! I absolutely loved how these Valentine Heart Owl Keepsake turn out and I know that the girls grandmothers will too! Nothing says I love you like something your kiddos make themselves!
Valentine Heart Owl Keepsake
I love when my girls make things themselves, especially cards. I haven’t purchased a celebration card in a while. My girls are always up for created their own for family and friends.
Here’s a great Valentines day keepsake card that you can easily gift to grandma, grandpa, and anyone they would love to give it too.
Red, white, pink construction paper
Googley Eyes- Large
Cut heart shapes out of each color paper as follows –
1 large white heart- for the body
1 large red heart- for the wings
1 pink heart, about half the size of the white one- for the head
1 red heart a little smaller than the red – for the face
2 red small hearts- for the talons
1 really small pink heart- for the beak
Place the white heart with the rounded (top) part facing down towards you. Glue the pink heart (the head)over the point of the white heart. Then layer the red face heart onto that.
Cut the red wing heart in half. Glue one on each side of the body, point facing down. (refer to photo)
Glue the googley eyes and pink beak heart onto the face.
Glue the talons onto the bottom of the body.
This craft is easy and uses a minimal amount of materials, so it is great for all ages. You can add more elements if you wish by writing a small note or decorating your owl. Glitter glue would work perfect for this! You can also make a small version of the owl and glue it into a homemade card!
Also, teachers can incorporate this into a preschool lesson plan while learning about the shape heart.
Now the kids can have fun decorating or adding words to make it the best Valentine Keepsake ever!
