Since we have moved away from my parents I have started looking for fun ways to include them in our lives even from a distance. Today we made these long distance hug Valentine gifts to mail to them. My plan was to make them Monday and get them in the mail but since we were in Colorado on an unplanned trip we had to make them a little later. But they are in the mailbox waiting to get picked up.
- Construction Paper
- Art Supplies
We started with tracing hands and cutting them out. Then we moved on to coloring, glitter gluing and adding pompoms. After that we made a little Valentine note and added it to the middle of the ribbon. We glued both hands onto the end of the ribbon and let it all dry. (I added tape for extra measure on the hands.
Once they were dry we put them in an envelope and put them in the mailbox. I’m sure Grandma and Popa will love them when they arrive! If it’s not spoiled by them reading this first 😉
