DIY Little Mouse Valentines Cards -- A Mommy and Me Project

I was asked by my MOMS group to design a Valentine's Day project for the February newsletter. So I came up with this cute project using E's and Q's fingers. Wouldn't these Valentine's Day cards be perfect for Grandma and Auntie?

Here are close-ups of both of the cards.

I wish the pictures did these cards justice. They are just adorable in real life. Maybe I'm just biased because I'm utterly in love with the little fingers that made them.

I purposefully designed this project to be:
1.quick and easy (each card only took about 10 minutes)
2. low on materials.

I chose materials that I figured just about everyone has at home: markers, pen, and paper. You can see the directions and materials list in the picture below. You can also download a PDF version here if you'd like to keep a copy for your own records.

Since E and Q are both 5 and 3 respectively, I held their fingers and stamped them. However, if you have older children (most likely E could have done it herself) they can probably stamp their own fingers with a little guidance.

I hope that you have fun with this project!

What a lovely idea for those of us who have no drawing expertise. Thank you so much.
