I Love You To Pieces – Toddler Valentine’s Day Card

I love making Valentine’s Day crafts with Luke. I’m also keen to cut down on waste, so this Valentine’s Day craft uses recycled paper and a witty slogan to get the message across.

The “I Love You To Pieces” toddler’s Valentine’s Day card is simply adorable and I’m not sure how anyone could turn down such a heartfelt card on Valentine’s Day.

How to make this cute toddler “I Love You To Pieces” Valentine’s Day card craft:

Make the card shape and draw a heart.

I used a A3 piece of white card and folded it in half to make the Valentine’s Day card. Using a pink Sharpie, I drew a heart shape on the front of the card. For the “pieces”, I gave Luke a glue stick and we used old pieces of wrapping paper that were left over from Christmas.

Cut down on waste and single use items by using recycled wrapping paper.

This Valentine’s Day card was a perfect way to use up some of the old wrapping paper that we have left over from Christmas. I’ve kept a whole box full of it for various crafty activities – last Christmas, most of our gifts came in non-Christmassy wrapping paper, so we can sort of get away with using it all year round. Plus I really like how that saves on waste as a lot of wrapping paper used these days isn’t actually recyclable.

Cut different shapes and different colours, then mix them all together for the pieces in your Valentine’s Day card.

I cut up a variety of wrapping paper designs into small pieces and put them all in a big mixing bowl for Luke to choose freely.

Luke looked through all the pieces and chose the paper pieces that he wanted, then stuck them wherever he wanted to on the Valentine’s Day card. There was no pressure to stick the pieces of paper actually into the heart shape, which made the whole activity far more pleasurable for the both of us.

To be honest, I’m surprised that so many pieces of paper actually found themselves in the heart shape!

Add your message!

When writing the “I Love You To Pieces” message, I used a variety of brightly coloured Sharpies and just wrote the message where I could fit it! We also wrote a little personal message on the inside of the Valentine’s Day card.
