Teach Starter Publishing

A gorgeous love heart waterfall template for your students to create for someone special.

Let Love Flow With A Waterfall Card 

Create a unique message of love for someone special with this adorable card template. 

Students will write a special message that appears on the hearts when the recipient pulls on the bottom tab. They can write a single note on each heart, or use the pull tab’s cascading effect to reveal one word at a time. 

This template can be used to celebrate events like:

❤️ Mother’s Day 

❤️ Father’s Day 

❤️ Grandparent’s Day 

❤️ Valentine’s Day

And more!

✂️ Hand Over The (Safety) Scissors 🖍️

You don’t have to cut these elements yourself. This template makes for a bonus cutting skills activity, depending on your students’ ages and abilities. 

With adult supervision, cutting skills help students work multiple muscle groups and their brains, plus:

  • Strengthen finger and hand muscles
  • Build dexterity and fine motor skills
  • Improve hand-eye coordination
  • Develop focus and attention

And all of these skills are necessary to use a pencil, a toothbrush, a fork; button a shirt, zip-up pants, tie shoes; write, type, and swipe.

Scissor skills are brain and muscle skills!

    No video or written instructions? Love the idea but can’t work out how to actually implement it

    Thanks Holly, it's the folding we are unsure of, are they all folded under, ie same direction, not back and forth like a fan?

      Hi Renee, they are folded the same way.

      Hi Kirstie, thanks for your feedback. The video was intended to show teachers how to create the card so that they could in turn explain it to their students. We appreciate your feedback and have made the video slower for you to show to your students. I hope this is useful for you. Thanks again for your comment.
