Cut felt into heart shapes (about 2 inches tall and 1 inch wide).
Decorate with wiggly eyes, smaller felt hearts, glitter, or whatever else tickles your fancy.
Snip a slit in the middle of the heart large enough to fit over the button, then slip it on.
Use 1 large piece of construction paper for the placemat. From another piece of construction paper cut a heart. Paint one of the child’s hands and have the child make a handprint on the heart shape. Glue this onto one side of the construction paper. In the center of the paper write the poem you have selected. On the other side you can glue a photograph of the child obtained from the parents or perhaps taken during class. Once complete the picture can be laminated or contact paper can be used to preserve it. If you would like you can have the child decorate the back of his/her placemat. Don’t forget the date!
Cut hearts out of fun foam. (A cookie cutter makes this easy). Cut out the middle of the paper plate so that you only have an outer ring. Glue on the hearts, overlapping and covering all of the plate. (Let the kids place them sporadically around, their creativeness makes this really cute.) Glue a loop of yarn or string to the back. You can also add some glitter ribbons and stickers to make it more fun!
Fill baby jars with cotton balls. Cut out 1 large heart, which is just a little taller and wider than the front of the jar. Cut out a medium size heart which is about 1″ larger than the base of the jar. Cut out 2 small hearts (about the size of a penny or dime). Glue large heart to the face of the jar so that the top of the heart extends beyond the top of the jar (gives the appearance of ears). Glue med. heart to the base of the jar so that the top of the heart extends beyond the front of the jar (top of heart sticking out from the base will look like feet). Glue small hearts on the sides of the jar in the middle (looks like hands). Glue a cotton ball to the back of the jar (looks like a cotton tail). **Have the kids draw the face on the large heart before gluing.
Cut out heart shapes from heavy poster board, have kids glue red and pink (small) pieces of construction paper on hearts. If you have small pictures of kids, glue in the center of the heart. Using fingers, cover the entire heart with a thin coating of modge podge, it will dry clear and glossy. You can put magnet strips on the back.
Paint the child’s hand red and print it on paper twice to make a heart. Cut out eyes, mouth, arms and legs and let the child glue them on the heart.
Cut out different sized, smaller hearts from red and pink paper (a whole bunch of them). Then cut the middle out of a paper plate and glue the hearts all over the plate to make a valentine wreath. Make bows with some yarn or ribbon.
- Glue the pompom to the bottom of the candy wrapper.

- Put a piece of sticky-back magnet on the bottom of the candy wrapper.
- Cut a small tip off the Styrofoam ball with the knife.
- Push the Styrofoam ball into the clay pot, flat end down.
- Push the pen into the Styrofoam ball, past the metal writing tip. At an angle rotate it a few times to make a hole slightly larger than the pen. Be careful not to make the hole too large, as the hole will serve to hold the upright pen later on. Remove the pen from the hole.
- Use the scissors to force or cut the cap off the pen. Be careful not to cut into the ink barrel.
Caution: Aim the pen away from yourself and others! Pull the rose off its stem. Notice the small remaining stem underneath the rose. Insert the remaining stem into the top of the pen, and glue it into place. Keeping it taunt, wrap the floral tape down the pen, starting just beneath the rose, until you get to the metal writing tip. Tear off excess tape. Insert your flower pen into the Styrofoam hole far enough to hold it upright. Be careful not to bunch up the tape. Place the moss inside the clay pot, covering the Styrofoam ball. Tie the red ribbon into a bow underneath the flower.
