Scratch It Valentine Day Cards


I am having my kids make their Valentines Cards this week since I am going out of town next week with them. I am all done with my Associates Degree on Saturday, and I need an escape! I am heading to Portland to hang out with my mom, brother and pregnant sister (her hubby is going on deployment for 6 weeks). I can't wait! :)

Do you want to see what we did for cards?
First I made some simple little cards in Photoshop, I intentionally left them blank so that the kids could color them. If you want to print these I have them here, don't worry they're free! :)
I had the kids write out who the Valentine was for, their name and the secret they wanted their birdie friend to tell.
Well my 4 year old I just had him write his name...
...and I ended up erasing it on lots of them because he quickly got bored of writing his name over and over again and started scribbling instead.
So I had him start coloring...this held his attention span longer.
I paper pieced mine, this is just a sample of one I made for my husband. (I might make some a little bit naughtier for the actual occasion.. wink wink!)Then I took some clear contact paper and easily covered them up and laminated them. Then taking some DecoArt Paint in lots of different colors, we went to town and painted all the little speech bubbles, so they can be scratched off by the recipient to reveal the secret message.For the kids I am going to hot glue them to the front of Juice boxes to give to their friends.

For my husband I might attach it something 'juicy' too. :)
