My kids love running around the house with the felt wands I made them last year. With Valentine's Day coming up, I thought it would be fun to let them make their own heart wands out of paper. This way they could get in on the creating part and then still be able to have fun playing with them. It's a great way for us to spend time together and learn about shapes and colors. The kids were very proud of their creations.
What You'll Need
- cardstock (2)
- cardboard from a cereal box (1) - this is optional but gives the heart more durability
- large popsicle sticks (2)
How We Did It
I cut heart shapes out of paper and cardboard for them before we started. ( Some kids may be able to do this on their own.)
The kids glued the paper hearts to the cardboard hearts. (This is optional but I wanted to make the paper stronger.)
Once the wands are dry, it's time to decorate them! We used holiday foam stickers, ribbon and yarn. I gave both kids several stickers and let them stick them to their hearts. I helped them tie on the yarn/ribbon to the popsicle stick.
