Those of you who follow me on Twitter knew we were up to this yesterday — semi-homemade Valentine’s Day cards. Last year, the gifted and talented Brooke Reynolds of inchmark, provided a PDF for templates of half-drawn portraits — the kids color in details, such as eyes, freckles, glasses, hair — and I’ve been looking forward to handing them off to the girls ever since. (You may remember Brooke — she was the design genius behind the supremely popular DALS post “Rules of Dinner.”) If you’re scrambling to put together the classroom cards tonight, I promise you this will take you less time than it would to get in the car, drive to CVS, then address and stuff the storebought cards. And the kids will have fun doing it. We even made one for the dog.
Oh my GOSH these are awesome! I will totally have to try this with Julia next year — this year it’s Kung Fu Panda cards. ???
Oh I think you just saved my life. Again! THANK YOU!
I got such a kick out of seeing these.. They look awesome!! We really should have added some color to ours last year.
Oh my goodness, these are amazing. Thanks so much for sharing!

What an ingenious idea! We just finished making these for this year. My 3.5yo even loved this activity! Thank you 🙂
