High School Valentine Making

Most of the students in this class for highschoolers with autism breezed right through the fine motor aspects of our Valentine-making session, but a few needed a little help with folding, cutting and assembling the project.

Some students made complicated heart designs and a couple of students made simpler designs.

We had fun dabbing generous amounts of lavender oil onto the stamp pad and then using the stamps to put nice-smelling images on the valentines.  I've never put oils or essences onto a stamp pad before but time will tell whether or not it has a negative effect on the longevity of the pad.

Garnishing the valentines with candy conversation hearts was a sweet touch. 

Sometimes those corners just don't want to match up.
