Valentine's Day Fun Challenge Day 1: Valentine Hug!

Posted by   + Show Post

Is there someone in your child's life that would love a hug for Valentine's Day? Today's activity will help make that happen no matter how near or far they live! Drop it in the mail, give it as a gift, or keep it for yourself. Today's challenge is Valentine hugs!

Materials Needed:
 Yarn, string, or ribbon
 Glue or tape
 Optional supplies (markers, stickers, crayons, glitter, etc)  

You'll start by tracing your child's hands on a piece of paper and then cut them out (you can also stamp their hands). Then take your yarn, string, or ribbon and have your child put an end of yarn in one hand and have them stretch their arms out as wide as they can. Cut the yarn so that it measures their wingspan, then tape or glue the string to the cut out hands. You can have your kids decorate their hands with markers, crayons, stickers, or glue!

My son will be decorating his hands later today and mailing them to his great grandparents!

Do your kids give out Valentines to family and friends? Is there someone in your family that would like to get a long distance hug from your kids?

Both my kids give it to their friends (but obvious) and then try and send something to their grand parents who live in a different country.

These are so darn cute.  We are having a pool party, and I think maybe that's something cute to make after.
