Toddler Art: Valentine's Day Cards

A little while ago, Zoom and I spent an afternoon making some golf ball art.  I decided to use the golf ball art as part of our Valentine's this year. Here are all of the supplies we used: art, pinking scissors, glue, glitter heart stickers, card stock, patterned paper, and envelopes.

I cut the hearts out of the the golf ball art that Zoom had painted.

Here's one of the cards we made. I love the rainbow! It's got a groovy 70s vibe going on.

Here are all nine of the cards. I got the glitter heart stickers at Target. Everything else was something we had at home, making this a very economical project (perfect for "Finance month"). I feel like home made cards are more sentimental, and far less expensive than store bought cards which seem to run about $4 each. Card-making has been a hobby (and business) of mine for years!

When the cards were done and ready to go, Zoom helped sign them.  I helped address them :)

What kind of art projects have you been up to lately?
Happy (almost) Valentine's Day,
