Valentine’s Day is around the corner. Let’s make a puffy heart today <3
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 🙂
The picture of a HEART is synonym to LOVE. Let’s make a handprint heart today 🙂

Egg carton heart
You’ll need 12 egg carton cups
Paint them red
It’s so much easier to paint if you place them on an egg carton 🙂
Arrange them into a heart shape and glue them in place
A lovely egg carton heart shape 🙂

Heat a pan and place a silicon heart mould on it
Crack an egg into the mould

Let’s make a super simple heart mobile today 🙂
Valentine’s Heart Mobile
Refer to our post here and cut two hearts out of coloured construction paper. I prefer to use papers of different colours.
Cut a slit to the centre of the heart, one slit on the bottom half of the heart and the other heart on the upper half.
Slide the hearts together, top to bottom.
Tie a string or you may cut a strip of paper using craft scissors.

Get a piece of paper.
Cut out the shape of half a heart.
There, your symmetrical heart shape. It can never be too ugly no matter what 😛
