Valentines Day is definitely one of my favorite celebrations. There is something about the color pink that warms my heart. Children especially enjoy Valentines Day. Crafts,candy, hearts and cards…what isn’t there to love!
To get into the spirit of Valentines Day, we made this adorable and super easy craft. If you’re like me, your time is limited and you need something that doesn’t require a lot of prep time, have a huge supply list, or leave us with a major clean up project. Look no further, this craft is sure to warm your heart.
Gather your supplies. I was able to purchase the paper and heart die cuts at Michaels. Tip: They always have a coupon. I just go to the Michaels website and download it to my phone.
1. Pink, red, white and brown card stock paper
2. Die cuts ~ hearts (preferably two different sizes)
3. Pencil, glue & scissors
Using the die, cut out hearts using red and pink paper. I used two different size die cuts. Older children could use stencils to trace and cut out their own hearts or even paint the hearts onto the paper. In this project, we just needed to glue the hearts.
Trace your hand and a small portion of your arm onto brown paper. This will become the tree trunk and branches.
Gather your hearts and prepare to glue.
Glue your hand and arm onto white paper.
Begin gluing hearts onto the paper as the leaves.
