Beautiful upcycling of old (not quality classrooms) crayons into:
We used these great hearts to make valentines for friends (click on the image for more details):
The hearts we used for valentines, barely made a dint in the bag so we pulled them out again to create some art for the baby room and to mail to Boma.
Rose enjoyed drawing around her hand.
And gluing was definitely a hit.
Resulting a lovely bright, tree collage.
Daisy spent a bit more time colouring her hand and adding detail to her tree by hand.
She was equally proud of her tree and owl collage which incorporated hearts.
While they created I did too:
Using their hands as tree trunks, Rose helped find green hearts and glue them on. Now little brother, when he arrives, has his sisters art on his wall.
What do you do with your left over hearts and valentine’s decorations?
Valentine’s Day is approaching fast and an activity that both girls could do at their level was needed.
Heart mosaics fills this request well. They are made from sturdy card and have different colours on each side. With 6 shapes and 12 colours they are very versatile and a great price, at under $10.
Here are the supplies we used:
I had some recycled card that was printed on one side. Rather than throw it away we used the blank side and mounted it on coloured card. I love the colour framing. Daisy used large postcard size card to make wonderful creations from the hearts:
The guide she is using is included in the package and she was able to use it independently. Here are her valentines so far:
Rose on the other hand was happy to glue and stick. Then run around and give them to her stuffies.
While Daisy enjoyed gradually building designs using the teaching guide, Rose was all about using a glue stick and mass producing!
We will add a candy lollipop and sticker to the back and done!
Here are the Valentine’s Day cards we made two years ago:
