A Valentine for the Grandparents

Have you noticed that I really get into Valentine's Day? I love it.

While Gracie and I were shopping this past weekend, we got a few extra supplies. I allowed Grace to pick all of them, so we got a lot of pink foam hearts and purple foam hearts and foam dogs. I added some glittery red foam stickers and magnets, and we were ready to go.

I have to point out that the roll of stick-on magnet I bought cost me 59 cents. The glittery foam stuff was $6.99. How bizarre is that?

One of the hearts that Grace chose was really large, about four inches across. We started with those. I let Grace go crazy with the rest of the foam stickers, and I encouraged her to cover the other hearts.

That was the bulk of the project. It happened so fast that I got only one picture of the whole thing.

After finishing the stickers, I asked Grace which one she wanted to give to each of the people on our list. She assigned them, and I wrote each recipient's name on the back of the heart so that I wouldn't forget.

After Grace moved on to a new activity, I cut magnets from the roll and stuck them to the back of the hearts.

The only step left is to give them to our friends!

  1. CUTE! We've made heart magnet valentines for our grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins too! My girls love foamie crafts. I love when foamies have adhesives on one side and there's no need for glue and any sticky clean-up.

  2. Great idea! I love that sticky magnetic stuff. We need to pick some more up. We did something similar with Christmas trees at Christmas and stuck them on plain metal tins with cookies in them.

  3. Boy, that brings back memories. 🙂 What a fun time with your daughter. I think all the friends will love them!!!

  4. Making them into magnets is BRILLIANT! I may be rethinking our Valentine ideas this year…:)

    When my Gracie was probably about your Gracie's age (I'm totally guessing) we took all her favorite Valentines (princesses mostly) and stuck them to magnet sheets. We used them all year as refrigerator magnets and got a new batch the next year.
