1. Find Tiny Pictures

I gave my son a stack of junk mail and asked him to find tiny pictures that would fit inside the bottle caps. He especially enjoyed picking out pictures from the book order form from school. He used a small round magnet as a template and traced around the pictures that he wanted to use.

2. Cut the Tiny Pictures Out

Give your child a pair of scissors and let him go to work cutting out the tiny photos, one for each Valentine he plans to give.
