Long Distance Hug!

A long distance hug. We have to do this for the kids! Thank you Pinterest for so many ideas of how to do cute things for kids far away

You need construction paper (preferable pink or red), a pretty ribbon, scissors, a hole punch, tape and the special note (I will post at the end of the post)

Directions:

Step 1: Trace both hand prints on construction paper

Step 2: Cut out the hand prints and make a hole

Step 3: Measure the arm span of your child and cut the ribbon in the same lengths

Step 4: Tie the hands onto the ends of the ribbon (I like to enforce the paper with tape, that it will not rip) or glue them together.

Step 5: Print out my note or handwrite the following note on a piece of paper (mine is in German):

A valentine hug to you…

Wrap these hands around you whenever I am not there, so you can have a hug from me anytime.

Optional step 6: The hug itself is pretty awesome already, but I also like to cut out small hearts, make a hole and tie them with extra ribbon onto the string or simple glue them like I did.
