Scratch-off lottery tickets give me an adrenaline rush like you wouldn’t believe. Will I win $100? Maybe $1000? It never works out though does it? I have never won a dime playing the lottery. I haven’t even won a penny. But I still love scratching off that silver coating, the shreds getting stuck under my unmanicured fingers. Since I don’t buy lottery tickets very often, I can get my fix with these Scratch-Off Valentines. And unlike lottery tickets, they are totally kid friendly.

1. First, print the valentines onto heavy cardstock. The heavier the better.
2. Next, cover the valentines with CONTACT paper. You can also use packing tape tape, which is what I did. I did not have any contact paper handy and Target didn’t have any but they did have packing tape, so that is what I used. you just need something clear over the valentine
3. Next, mix 2 parts paint with one part Dawn.
4. Paint the mixture over the rectangles to cover the words.
5. Let the paint dry and then scratch off to reveal the message.
