Let’s get started on this darling handmade heart Valentine project! First, gather all of your supplies. This will make crafting a lot easier.

Begin by folding a piece of construction paper accordion style. We folded the paper long ways, and cut two heart paper chains from each piece of paper.  

Now, cut a heart shape on the top fold, but be sure not to cut it all the way along the folded edges. If you cut a full heart, the paper chain will become a pile of hearts.

Then, repeat that as many times as you need to to make Valentine’s Day cards for all of your little valentines.  

Next, carefully unfold the hearts, and decorate your paper chain.

Help your little one write their name on the hearts if they need it. You can do this by drawing penciled dotted lines for the letters of their name for them to trace.
