Outside of Card
Inside of Card
Supplies Needed; Wiggly eyes, markers or crayons, glue, scissors, a large hole punch, and construction paper.
Cut construction paper to desired size for card. Punch a hole in the middle (or off center) of the card. Write on the front of the card, you can use one of the examples (seen above) or you can make up your own. Inside the card, glue on the wiggly eye, so that it appears to be looking out of the punched hole. On the inside of the card, draw a monster or creature around the wiggly eye.
Here is an easy one. We braided yarn and made bracelets, then colored and hole punched the template (seen below), then threaded the bracelet through.
Supplies needed; Print out of template (below), M&M Candy, and a stapler
Directions; Print out template (below), and cut out each game. Staple 1 bag of M&M Candy to each game.

"Hug" Valentine Card
This project would be perfect for deployed military parents or family members and friends living far away.
Supplies Needed; Print out of template (below), red yarn, red construction paper, glue, hole punch, and scissors.
Directions; Using the red construction paper, fold it in half and trace child's hands (using a pencil). Cut out the hand outline (the fold will allow for 2 hand shapes to be made). Use your hole punch to put one hole in the palm of each hand. Next take the red yarn and measure the child's "wingspan" (from palm to palm, across their chest). Print out the template (below) and decorate as desired, once decorated, use the hole punch to put two holes in the top of the decorated template. Now thread your "wingspan" yarn through the decorated template, and through the holes of each hand and glue ends to back of palm. Allow to dry.
