We had lots of fun last week with my son’s friends making these cute valentine’s day crafts. Lots of glitter glue was involved which always seems to be a winner and sticking the hearts helped improve their fine motor skills while us mums attempted to drink tea while it was still hot! Each kid made their own valentine’s day wreath, two four year old boys and a two year old girl and I think they look pretty cool!
Glue / glitter glue
Heart shaped hole punch. I bought mine at a 99p shop but I found this one on Amazon which looks similar if there isn’t a shop near you.
Vintage music sheets. If for some reason you don’t have a big stack of these you can always use any other cute paper or you can download this free vintage sheet music from The Graphics Fairy.
How to make your kids valentine’s day wreaths:
I started by cutting out some wreath shapes from the red card. I don’t have the steadiest hand for stuff like this so I drew around two bowls first to make sure they looked vaguely circular. Then I used my heart hole punch to cut out some cute heart shapes and we were ready to go!
The kids got busy with the glitter and there was peace and quiet for actual whole minutes! Imagine! The heart shapes are a little bit fiddley so using them can help your child’s fine motor skills, all three children managed it ok when we made these. If you want to hang your wreath up all you need to do is stick a bit of cotton to the back with sellotape or washi tape.
