Super Cute Last Minute Valentine’s Day Gift

With only a few days until Valentine’s Day, I was struggling to find a super cute last minute Valentine’s Day gift that my preschooler could make her for her daddy. However, when I came across this lipstick kisses project, I knew I had found THE perfect gift, especially since my little girl is all about makeup right now…and what daddy doesn’t love kisses from his little girl? It’s a super easy project your preschooler can do, whether it’s for those last minute homemade valentines or a keepsake gift for parents or grandparents. Plus, with a few embellishments (like a handwritten message, ribbon, stickers, and/or a frame), you can have a professional looking gift in less than 5 minutes! Here’s what you’ll need to make this super cute last minute Valentine’s Day gift:

Materials: 

  • White paper (I used an acid free art paper. I’m not sure how it will react with the lipstick over time though)
  • Different colored lipsticks
  • Mirror (optional)
  • Frame (optional)
  • Pen (for writing text- optional)
  • Scissors (optional- only if framing)

Step 1: This is an incredibly easy project for your preschooler (or for you) and only really requires one step– applying lipstick, kissing paper, and repeating until you get the desired amount of kisses on your paper. I had to help my 3-year-old daughter with the entire process, but older children may not have any need for assistance.

Step 2: (Optional) If you want to take this project one step further and make it look more professional, you can add little details to it, such as text or a frame. You could also add special stickers or ribbon for a little extra embellishment. For mine, I did a search for “love” written in cursive, found an image I liked, and practiced duplicating the word several times prior to actually writing on the picture. I also had a matted frame from the Dollar Tree lying around, so I placed the finished product in it. I think my other half is going to LOVE the Valentine’s Day gift from his special little girl. It also makes a great gift for grandparents, too! Enjoy! =)
