I Spy Kids Valentine [+ Free Printable]

DIY Kids Valentine Cards

Just before Valentine’s Day Sawyer and Priscilla helped me make a Kids Valentine I Spy Heart.  The kids had a blast searching for red colored toys and objects around the house.  And it was excellent practice in color recognition.  Here’s the super-easy steps:

How to Make an I Spy Kids Valentine:

  1. Grab a basket and go on a hunt for small, red (or pink) toys and objects.
  2. Lay objects out in a heart shape on a large white sheet of paper.
  3. Standing directly over the heart, photograph it (using your macro setting if possible).
  4. Use a basic photo editing software (like Picnik) to crop and add wording to your Valentine.

If you aren’t up for making your own, download the FREE printable Kids Valentine I Spy Cards here.  But I really recommend doing this with your preschoolers.  My kids had so much fun hunting for the toys that I think we’re going to make one for every holiday!  Stay tuned for St. Patrick’s Day greens…
