Poké Ball Valentine’s Cards

I found it so surprising to observe the enthusiastic come back of the Pokémons through the Pokémon Go game.
I remember watching the Pokémons on TV fifteen years ago and I have always enjoyed these little cute creatures. The most astonishing fact about this come back in 2016 was probably to predict who was playing Pokémon Go by watching people walking in the street with their phones.

At 3 years old, Sid already has a pretty impressive collection of Pokémons cards which inspired me to make a cute Poké Ball Valentine’s Cards.

Here are the supplies we used:

When our friends Nam 4 years old and Mia 2 years came over, they were very excited to strat the Poké Balls Valentine’s Cards.

Before starting the craft, it is fun to go over some Pokémon pictures from the most popular such as Pikachu to some less known. The children can share their favorite and explain what the Pokémons have the power to do.

We then started the project by painting the semi-circle as well as the half circle with red paint. We spread some glitter on the semi-circle which will be glued on the top left side of the circle.

Let’s also paint the rectangle piece of paper in black as well as some glitter before gluing it on the bottom of the semi-circle.

While Sid, Nam, and Mia are having some fun, I picked some easy-to-draw Pokémons and challenge my artistic skills!
I used these awesome Crayola markers which have a nice variety of colors.
