Oops. I did it again. Am I making you believe I’m a crafter yet? Ok, we won’t go that far, but yes, I did attempt another craft with the kids, and, yes, we did survive it! Victory!
Simple Conversations Hearts Craft
I joke a lot here about my inability to be that “Pinterest Mom,” but it really is pathetic how sad I am at trying to be that. I’m waaaay too Type A to be doing crafts (read: allowing other people to be doing them knowing full well if they mess it up I can do nothing about it), but my kids love them. I mean they LURVE them. So I do it for the kids and win all sorts of “Mom-of-the-Year” comments from them, which warms my soul and makes me want to do more fun stuff like this with them.
Oh my gosh. I just figured it out! They are using reverse psychology on me to make me do crafts with them! Sneaky, sneaky. I digress.
Valentine’s Day Craft
This craft was so painless and simple, I probably should’ve shared it first.
Simple Conversation Hearts Craft Supplies
- Construction Paper
- Popsicle Sticks
- Glue stick, tape, some sort of sticky substance
- Coloring utensils
- Black Marker
Conversation Heart Directions
Steps 1 & 2: Cut heart shapes out of construction paper while your kids color the popsicle sticks (if yours are a little older than mine, they could probably cut out their own hearts).
Step 3: Write phrases (or have the kids write phrases) on the hearts in black marker.
Voila! You’re done. Seriously. That’s it. And, if you’re lucky like me and have an awesome heart shaped vase, you can make it even prettier by stuffing some paper into a vase and let them peek out from the top. Isn’t it just too cute? What are some other ideas you have for doing simple activities with your kids? I’d love to hear about them!
