Make these simple wrapped hearts and decorate your wall with these kid-made hearts.

Around Valentine’s Day the kids and I love to fill our home with all their beautiful Valentine’s day crafts and the Valentine Art work they have done. We started this year’s hearts fun with yesterday’s Hearts Stencils Art. We also have saved all our previous Valentine’s day crafts and plenty of art.

Today we are sharing a simple Valentine craft that is a great fine motor work out as well

Materials

We cut strips of aluminum foil and twisted them to make hearts of different sizes. My 5 year old really got into this process of creating beautiful sparkly hearts from foil and with my help we were able to make plenty of hearts. I set out many craft supplies for her to choose from to decorate or wrap her hearts. You can even set out paint or markers for younger children who would simply love to color their hearts.

 She chose her sparkly pipe cleaners first and went about wrapping them carefully.

 Well, everything has got to be multi-colored right?

The soft ribbons were up next. When she chose the ribbon, I started her off by taping one end of the ribbon to the foil hearts and having her continue the rest. It held one end of the ribbon in place to avoid frustration!

We continued with couple of different types of ribbons and ended up with these beauties.
