Easy Kids Valentine Craft

February 11, 2009 at 2:57 am 4 comments

Its another Hobby Humpday, WFMW combo.

The kids and I did these for a test run, so I could bring them to Nathan’s class on Thursday.

So the supplies you need are a pencil, some glue, various colors of tissue paper cut in squares, and foam or cardstock hearts.


First thing you do is wrap a little square of tissue around the eraser end of the pencil like this…


Dip it into a little bit of glue


Apply it to your heart.


If your child can’t wrap the tissue this looks cute also


I drew a heart shape in the middle of mine as a guideline for a different color.


We turned ours into a chandelier mobile, but I think they would be adorable turned into garland by stringing them with twine or ribbon.

You can play along if you’d like, just leave me a comment.
