A Valentine Keepsake

The kids have been intrigued  and excited by the following little project I put together for Valentine's Day - simply because they got to put their hand in wet paint!  The children have been waiting with eager anticipation to present their Valentine poem as a gift to their families on Valentine's Day.

Let me hold your heart in my hand,
This is where your heart needs to be!
My love for you will always be true,
Your heart will be safe here with me!

Valentine keepsakes.
In all honesty, we didn't have a lot of time to put these together.  So to speed up the process, I assembled the papers ahead of time and printed the poem on some clear, standard mailing labels.  Once the child's hand print was dry, they chose a heart sticker to place in the center and Voila! A Valentine keepsake for families to keep forever!  Enjoy! :)
