We are gearing up for all things V-day. I'm not usually too big on Valentine's Day, but having a blog and a baby makes even little holidays more of an event around here! Little gets so much joy out of all the crafts, stories, and decorations, how could I disappoint? Even if it means lots of glue on my Pottery Barn table...
We threw together a fun and time consuming (if you have preschoolers, you know this is awesome!) craft to bring a little fun to the kitchen.
The process was quite simple. I used to do this with my first graders all the time.
Just cut out a heart or two out of cardboard or something else with some substance.
Then, trim your desired color of tissue paper into little squares.
Set out a palette of glue and show your child how to scrunch up a square of tissue and dip it in the glue. We had a big talk about the difference between a 'dip' and a 'dunk'...
Get those little hands moving and about 30 minutes later (Yes!! Fold some clothes, eat a snack, take a nap?? Just kidding, I would never...) you'll have some completely covered hearts!
*Disclaimer - I had to go back in and fill in some spots to cover the cardboard. Little worked on this for a loooong time, but we had differing opinions on what was "finished". :)
I think they turned out pretty cute and he had a blast working on them, to a point. Maybe we'll do some shamrocks next month! Or some Easter eggs...hmmm.
Tomorrow I'll be showing you some more decor we have going on. Got to go make a gajillion pretzel hugs for preschool!
Hope you have a fab day!
