The child will develop fine motor skills by tracing, cutting, pasting, and writing a special valentine that represents him/her.

What You Need:

  • pink or red construction paper
  • make your own boy/girl patterns
  • scissors
  • glue
  • pencil
  • heart pattern

What You Do:

For the Teacher:
  1. Create girl and boy patterns that can be shared among your students.

  2. Create a heart pattern large enough to paste in the middle of the boy or girl shapes.
For the Students:
  1. Give the children a pencil and have them trace the [girl or boy] pattern onto a piece of contruction paper.

  2. Have the child color the pattern by making it look like him/her.

  3. Have the child cut out the heart and glue it in the middle of the body.

  4. Have the child write "Hug Me" in the middle of the heart.
Once the child is finished, roll the project up and tie it with a red ribbon. When parents open this special Valentine, it will be a little replica of their child that says "HUG ME."
