Homemade Valentines

Here's a different kind of valentine for your kids to pass out to their friends.


What You'll Need:
- Your camera

- Your kids

- Lollipops

- Exacto knife

The How To:

- First find a place to take the picture of your child.

- Next have them hold out their arm with their hand in a fist shape (as if they are holding the imaginary lollipop)

- Then take the picture

- Upload your photo to your computer and use a photo editing software to add words on the photo if you want.

-Either print your pictures from home or send them away to a 1 hour photo developing place.

- When you get them back, use your exacto knife and carefully put a little slit above and below the hand thats a fist.

-And then slip the lollipop in those slits to make it look like they are really holding the lollipop.

- Thats it! They are ready to be handed out!
