Here's a tutorial to make these fun wooden cards for your loved ones.
- small logs (we used some from our firewood pile)
- red paint
- thin ribbon
Step 1: Have an adult cut thin "cookies" out of your log of wood.
Step 3: Have you child paint "in" the heart.
Step 4: Let dry completely.
Step 5: Drill a hole at the top and tie a ribbon and message to the "wooden" cookie.
Or if you prefer, you can skip the drill and bow and just write your message directly on the back using a permanent marker.
Project Options: If you don't have access to logs and a saw, you can still make some "wooden" valentines. Have you child collect large pieces of bark to paint on. Or, gather little sticks and paint the message horizontal across the stick.
