Your preschooler can say, "I'm sew glad we're friends!" with a card that doubles as a sweet lacing toy for your child's valentine.

Have your child use tempera paint to decorate a piece of paper. Let the paint dry, then glue the paper to a piece of thin cardboard (we used a recycled cereal box). Cut out a heart shape (ours is about 6 by 7 inches), adding more glue to seal the edge, if needed. Help your tot use a hole punch to make openings around the heart as shown. Write a message on the back, tape on a shoelace (you can knot one end and start the lacing so that the recipient gets the idea) and prepare to win hearts.
