My kids love to do anything with yarn. They consider it to be “sewing” and love to create with it or even just sit around and cut it into tiny pieces. We painted some cardboard hearts and then wrapped them in pink and white yarn. They now proudly display their work on their dressers. Read more
We created some heart mobiles to hang in our homeschool room. You need: 1 paper plate cardstock hearts paint yarn We painted the plates and the hearts. Once they were dry we cut the plates in a spiral and attached the hearts using sparkly yarn. Punkin loves staring up at them!

What you’ll need: 1 toilet paper roll covered in white paper 1 colored heart 2 googly eyes pretty string or yarnRead more
Heart Resist I cut out some heart shapes from cardstock and used masking tape on the back to stick them to a piece of cardstock. The kids used watercolor paints to paint their pictures. When dry, we gently peeled off the hearts. White hearts/water color background!
Heart Stamps We recycled some toilet paper tubes and made some heart stamps. The kids loved them and made pages and pages of hearts. And they turned out even better than I expected!
Valentine Trees The kids helped me make some valentine trees for the mantle. 2 foam cones 2 colors of yarn heart buttons hot glue They took forever! Round and round and round and round. But the kids were so proud and they were so easy!
