An Easy Way to Tell Your Kids They're Special

I'm always looking for ways to tell my kids I love them. I'm conscious that they hear a lot of "No," "Stop," and "Don't," so I like to take the opportunity to let them know just how lovely they are and why.

One way I've found is by making a paper fortune teller with love notes for each of my children, which I leave on the table waiting for them at breakfast in the morning.

Do you remember making origami paper fortune tellers as a kid? I remember making them but couldn't remember how so I looked it up online. They're super easy. Click here to watch a video guide to creating them.

Materials Needed

  • Patterned paper
  • Solid color construction paper
  • Pen
  • Glue

Instructions

I used patterned paper and cut out letters spelling "love" for the top section. For the inside, I made a love heart, a kiss, a hug, and a question mark.

Instead of a fortune, I wrote a reason why I love them, such as, "I love that you love to run so much" or "I love how your face lights up when you smile."

I put those notes on heart shapes cut out of colored paper and stick them on the paper fortune tellers. The kids will love this as a game, and they'll definitely love hearing good things about themselves!
