How to make a heart card

Valentine’s Day is almost here, which means a perfect chance for your kiddos to share their love for the people in their lives. Heart cards are a perfect personalized gift for a kid to give to their family and friends that they appreciate or have not seen in a while. Feel free to join them in this craft and get in the loving spirit of Valentine's Day.

Follow our steps to bring your very own paper heart card to life!

Paper heart card

Let their creativity loose with extra paper and supplies for a variety of unique cards.


2 to 3 sheets of red and pink construction paper

Pencil and Markers

Glue stick


     1. Start by having your child fold a piece of construction paper in half. Feel free to help them fold the paper if they have trouble.

     2. With the folded paper, have your little one trace the shape of a heart. On the edge of the paper, your child's heart should be hanging over the folding portion of the paper. This will make sure that both halves of the paper stay connected after cutting.
     3. Next, have your little one use scissors to cut out the heart and help them to avoid cutting the folded part of the heart. When done, the folded paper will have two connected hearts.
     4. To decorate the card they can use additional construction paper or household items. Little cut-out hearts are a great way to decorate or by drawing with markers!
     5. Use the glue to connect decorations to the card and leave to dry for 15 to 30 minutes.
     6. Finally, they can write a message inside or attach a treat!
