We loved making these owl homemade valentines cards! With these cards your child will be able to make them all on their own with minimal assistance from you.
If your kids are very young, you may need to add the cute note yourself. This Valentine’s Day craft is very easy and if you have a little one who is learning their shapes this is a fun activity to make with them since you are using a large circle for the body, a triangle for the beak, two small circles for the eyes and a heart to add on to the body.
Here’s what you need to make these Owl Homemade Valentines Cards:
OWL HOMEMADE VALENTINES CARDS
- Cardstock (we used pastel pink)
- Self-sticking extra large googly eyes
- Heart stickers (we used foam stickers)
- Orange marker
- Black or gray marker
- Hole punch
- Suckers (we used Tootsie Pops)
First, trace circles onto your paper. You can use a cup, saucer, canning lid ring or anything else you have on hand.
Next, fold over the top.
Then fold sides at the corners, making sure the corners make a point, but don’t overlap too much.
Now add your googly eyes, heart sticker, and the beak with an orange marker.
Then punch two holes at the bottom for your sucker to slide through.
After that use the gray or black marker to write your message on the front and “To” and “From” on the back. Here’s some ideas for cute Valentines messages for this owl homemade Valentines card:
“Owl always love you!”
“Owl always be your friend!”
“Owl be yours.”
“You’re a hoot.”
“Whooo loves you?”
Finally, slide your sucker through the holes at the bottom to make it look like the owl is perched on a branch. We used Tootsie Pops because they reminded us of the tv commercials: “How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?”
Aren’t they cute?
