In another way it helps a child get in touch with their creative side by using their imagination. It would be their art and unique in it's own way, being that the card is created by a child and children love nothing more than to put a smile on their parent's face when they show the hard work they put into their Valentine's Day card.

This is a great idea, in my creativity areas I could teach whom ever I'll be babysitting to make the prettiest Valentines Day cards for their mom and dad, or even for their classmates & teachers they go to school with.
