Mail a Hug

Mail a Hug 01

National Hug Day is January 21st. If your family and friends live far away, you can still celebrate the day… by mailing them a hug!

All you need are:

  • Brightly colored paper
  • Pencil / Pen
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Decorating Supplies:  Markers, crayons, glue, glitter

Let’s get started!

Trace your hand prints onto a piece of paper. Carefully cut both prints out. Write a message on the front and decorate to your hearts content!

Mail a Hug 02

Cut a strip of paper into a long, thin strand (I made mine 11″ x 1″). Fold the paper in an accordian pattern.

Mail a Hug 04

Tape the accordian strip of paper to the back of each hand print.

Write the mailing address on the envelope, put a stamp on the front, stick your “hug” inside and mail!
