Are your kids giving Valentine’s Day cards to their classmates? Try something “from the heart” this year with these adorable homemade Scratch Art Bookmark Valentine gifts from our Blog Ambassador Amy (of teach mama). We love the idea of having your kids get involved in making special treats for their friends and peers (plus it makes for an excellent indoor weekend activity…a cure for cabin fever, perhaps?)

The best part is, your children’s friends can actually enjoy these bookmark cards after they receive them – so they double as a charming gift as well! Here’s an overview of Amy’s post, but for the full run-down visit her original blog post here.

1)      Gather the Melissa & Doug Scratch Art Bookmarks and any other supplies you’ll need to create a “wrapper”/card for the gift (stamps, markers, etc.)

2)      Create special Valentine’s Day messages using colorful card stock (Amy shares a printable that you can use as well)

3)      Add any designs, special messages, and ask your child to sign their name.

4)      Punch holes for the Scratch Art stylus to go, and a special ribbon to complete your Valentine!
