My son wanted to give something other than candy for his Valentine's Day cards.
We checked one of my favorite sites together, and sure enough, he picked this valentine, because he wanted to give a bouncy ball to all his friends.
This valentine was pretty cool to make, but I admit, I did all the work for cutting the area for the ball out. My son tried it, but we all decided that an 8-year old was too young to cut the area out, even under supervision.
We also decided to add a candy anyway, as I know from experience that Valentines are just 'paper shame' to an eight year old kiddo.
