Valentine’s Puffy Heart
Referring to our post here, cut a heart out of hard construction paper to be used as the template. Let the kids trace the outline of the heart on white hard construction paper.
Cut the heart out. Younger kids might need assistance in cutting the heart.
Paint the heart red. Let dry. Repeat on the other side.
Using a hole punch, punch a hole on the heart.
Cut long strips out of crepe paper. Cut again into small squares.
Crumple the crepe papers squares into tiny balls. You’ll need plenty of these.
Spread PVA Glue on one side of the heart.
Scatter the crepe paper balls onto the heart and press down to secure them. Repeat on the other side.
Tie a gold string through the hole and the Valentine’s Puffy Heart craft is done 🙂
