Heart Art

Yesterday we spent a lot of time doing various art projects, but one of Holly's favorite pieces was her crayon heart. She chose a few Valentine colors of crayon, peeled the labels off and started sharpening them up. Then she dumped all the crayon shavings onto to a sheet of wax paper. We then placed another piece of wax paper on top and I ironed them together (using a towel to protect the iron). Holly then proceeded to cut our some beautiful hearts from her new colorful paper. They are cute and she worked hard on this project!

Thanks for a great project for tonight! I was wanting to make an easy Valentine craft with my four year old and this will be perfect.

This was always one of my most favorite things to do as a kid.

Have you made butterflies yet? You cut out your butterfly shape and then you take two clothes pins facing each other in the center as the body and then attach pie cleaners to one pin for antenna. You can even glue on google eyes.
