Hmmm....This might have been more helpful about a week ago.
Needed: Red paper......"fancy" edged scissors....glue.....colored paper (I like the shiny paper for this.) (And looking at the sample photo below, it was taken before I had the kids try the fancy scissors...oh well.)
Here's what my preschoolers made last week. I cut red paper into 6" x 12" strips. After folding them in half, I used the cutting press thingy to cut heart shapes inside. Any shape could have been used as an opening with another theme greeting card.
I demonstrated how to use the "fancy scissors" that cut the unusual edges and then reminded the kids how we glue paper. ("Just a dot....not a lot.")
