This year I wanted to send long distance family members a special Valentine from our girls, but I wasn't sure what. Until I remembered an idea I used a few years ago with my former students (similar to this). But I didn't want to fold up that much paper into an envelope, so I used ribbon instead.
I measured the arm spans of both girls and cut ribbon the same length (C and I did some comparing with the 2 sizes and measured with the tape measure)
I helped the girls paint hand prints, I cut them out and glued onto the ends of the ribbon.
