In celebration of Valentine's Day next week, the kids made cards. We spiced things up a bit and made pop-up cards. They were incredibly simple to make. We had a lot of fun pretending to be surprised every time we opened one up.
|Start with a strip of paper.|
|Fold it in half horizontally and cut half a heart along the fold.|
|Fold the open ends in toward the center fold.|
|Glue the end flaps inside the card, so that the heart protrudes forward.|
|The beginnings of a disaster.|
|He made the cutest surprise behind the heart.|
|Alyssa kept gluing, gluing, gluing.|
|Jake drew a snow scene, complete with a snowball fight.|
|Aren't they cute?|
Jake informed me that they're not real valentines because they're not heart-shaped. Guess what we'll be doing tomorrow.
