Je t’aime means I love you. A valentines day card for dad.

Valentines day card

This valentines day card we made with my girl last week for her Papa. I like this kind of crafts that take a bit more time. They let her practice her fine motor skills while she’s having fun creating something special with a little bit of my help .
So first what you need to do, is to draw a heart for your child. Then help them roll little balls out a of tissue paper. When it seemed like you have enough , let them glue the little bolls inside the heart.



When this step is done, cut out the heart, and let your child glue it on the nice card stock. Give them a pretty pen, and let them decorate around the heart. Lily had fun at this step, and I kind of had to stop her from decorating the heart as well.


On the inside of the heart she had glued another little heart, and then I asked her if she wanted to say: I love you dad ( in French, since she speaks French with her dad) or kisses. She decided on I love you, so here it is :


We had a lot of fun preparing this card 🙂
