Dog valentine cards are perfect for the pet lover in your life. Valentine's Day plus an adorable puppy? It's a pretty irresistible combination. Help your child create a dog valentine card that brings these two sweet things together. Who will she want to give her dog valentine card to? Make a dog valentine card with your child this February.

What You Need:

  • Brown construction paper
  • Black construction paper
  • White construction paper
  • Red construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • White cardstock
  • Red felt
  • Red marker
  • Boxcutter

What You Do:

  1. Have your child use scissors to cut an oval out of the brown construction paper.
  2. Let her cut two eye shapes from the white construction paper.
  3. Help her cut two ear shapes and two small circles (the pupils) from the black construction paper.
  4. She's almost done cutting! Have her cut two small circles, two small hearts and one square from the red construction paper.
  5. The last cutting task she needs to do is cut one large heart out of the red felt. That's it -- no more cutting.
