Feeling snarky about Valentine’s Day at your kid’s secular school?
Or, are you just a bit bored with craft-foam hearts?
Or, do you worry you might damage yourself and others if you see one more Pinterest board full of cloyingly twee DIY Valentines?
Too bad. Your Jewish kid still has to cough up 18 sealed, unmarked Valentines to distribute at the class party.
This might help. It helped me: copyright-free images of anatomical hearts. Vintage, and thus less likely to induce gag reflexes of children with excessive post-nasal drip (been there).
Slide image onto desktop and into Word or similar program. Duplicate, resize, print onto cardstock and your kid can color, trim, and add to cards. Go crazy and make a pop-up.
Do provide a reference so she can see which bits are blue and which bits are red (and hopefully ask why).
I found the hearts in black/white and shaded pink via The Graphics Fairy, here.
I just noticed she mentions using the hearts with shrinky dinks. OH, the possibilities!
