Valentine Card: Peekaboo Valentine

Peekaboo Valentine

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Here's what we know: more than 90 percent of kids want a valentine for their grandparents. Here's what we suspect: more than 90 percent of grandparents love nothing more than their grandchildren's faces. Merge that data and you get this valentine, a wide-eyed favorite for all ages.


  • Red card stock
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Photocopy of a photo of the giver (with eyes the right size to peep through hole-punch holes)
  • Hole punch
  • Glue stick or double-sided tape-marker


1. Fold the card stock in half and draw a heart shape with one side along the fold to form a hinge (we used a heart-shaped cookie cutter for a pattern). Cut out the heart, keeping the hinge intact.

2. Measure the distance between the eyes on your photocopy. Use a pencil to mark that distance on the top heart and punch out the eyeholes with a hole punch.
