Frugal Friday - Fun Valentine Idea

I found this fun idea in the February issue of Family Fun magazine (you can get 24 FREE issues of this magazine here.) It worked out really well because I have a ton of small tubes of hand lotion that I got for FREE with coupons (see here).

This was super easy and fun!

++All I did was trace my sons hand onto some cardstock, used it as a template and cut out several hands.

++Then I either wrote on the hand or on a smaller piece of cardstock things like - You Deserve a Hand! and Hands down, you're the best! My original plan was to have the kids color the hands, but my son wouldn't let me have the hands he colored, he wanted to keep them! My daughter colored the green one below.

++Then I taped the hands to the lotion.

Voila!
The plan is...one for each grandma, and one for each Sunday school teacher :).
