Why buy Valentine’s card when you can make your own?! This one is simple and doesn’t require too many supplies. Kids of all ages will enjoy creating this happy hedgehog!
What You’ll Need:
›› White card stock
›› Washable paint (brown)
›› Pom poms
›› Glue stick
›› Sticker eyes
›› Black marker
›› Fold the cardstock in two (hamburger fold, not hotdog fold). Cut out a hedgehog shape with the fold to the top in order to create a card that can open.
›› Paint the hedgehog with brown washable paint. We used brown paint for the hedgehog’s body.
›› Cut out the hedgehog “quills” by cutting heart shapes out of colored paper or white paper that your child paints.
›› Use a glue stick to secure the hearts to the hedgehog’s body with the pointed end towards the back of the hedgehog.
›› When the hedgehog’s body is complete, invite kids to decorate their hedgehog’s face. We used a googly eye, a pom pom for the nose and a black marker to draw the smile.
›› On the inside write a sweet Valentine message — we went with “I am ‘hedge’ over heels for you!”
›› Your hedgehog Valentine is complete!
