Sometimes you just need a craft that is quick and easy to fill the time. This Valentine’s Day, try this ridiculously easy Valentine craft.
This easy Valentine craft is perfect for the littlest crafters.
Visit your local scrapbooking store or large retailer and purchase scrapbook pages. These are the large 12 x 12 pages that people glue their photos and other accents to. They come in a huge variety of designs and prints to choose from that will work for boys or girls.
To start, fold the page with the white side in and the print on the outside. You can leave the pages folded in half to resemble a regular card or you can cut them to resemble a heart when opened. With the print already on the paper very little decorating will need to be done to the outside, and your kiddo can concentrate on decorating and writing on just the inside.
This is an advantage for two reasons.
One, it is a time saver if you are not wanting to spend the whole activity time on this project. Your kiddo isn’t spending the whole time working on the outside only to run out of time for the inside.
Two, it saves on material costs. With the outside already decorated, this means that you will only have to purchase materials for the inside of the card. The card comes half decorated meaning that you only have to purchase half the materials for the rest.
To save money on the scrapbook pages find the pages that are on clearance or purchase them on a bulk package. Don’t worry if they aren’t Valentine’s Day designs the kids will add their own Valentine’s Day touches to them.
