i was looking for something fun and valentine-y to do today and this is probably the most easy project the boys and i’ve ever done. it requires 4 supplies and really very little patience.
my mom sent these little foam hearts in the mail to the boys and i thought a conversation heart garland would be fun. for this project you will need:
a pack of foam hearts (they came in pink, red purple and white — or you could just cut your own out of some of sheets of craft foam), silver sharpie marker, hole punch and some yarn.
just punch two holes in each heart — i punched them at the top of each “hump.” write traditional conversation hearts sayings on each heart, or just make up your own. this is a good thing to have a big kid do for you, but the marker can get kind of smelly, so be careful or do it yourself. when the sayings were all done, i just handed the hearts to my toddlers and had them thread the yarn through the holes. i put a bit of tape on the ends of the yarn to make them easier to thread.
they had fun, but they didn’t really string them on so i could hang the garland, so i had to re-do them. they boys didn’t care. they thought it looked lovely.
see, wasn’t that easy?
here’s a little valentine for you from me:
