Colored construction paper, scissors, glue
Cut a variety of sizes of hearts out of red, pink, and white paper. If your child is old enough, you can show them how to fold the paper to cut their own heart. Use the hearts to create animals. The possibilities are endless. My son made a butterfly with the hearts being the wings, and a dog with a big heart for the body, a small heart for the head, and tiny hearts for the tail and ears. Glue your animals onto construction paper. Be sure to create a couple of extra-special ones to send to far-away relatives.
