Valentine for MOMS

Inspired by this heart I made LAST YEAR for Valentine's Day...

I decided to make a similar craft with my Preschool Kids this week for Valentine Week, to give to their moms! I made them much smaller---more like 6" & cut out a pattern and then traced it onto some scrap bead board I had on hand...
This year I didn't even have to use a hand saw...yay!
I got to use my jigsaw that I got for my birthday this past October...
After I cut them out, I drilled 2 holes in them...
And then sanded them down!

Then I let my preschoolers PAINT THEM...pink or red! And then they sprinkled glitter on, while the paint was still wet...
Letting them dry...
Then we added some Valentine Ribbon, so they could hang them up & the kids were SO EXCITED to give them to their MOMS!!!

darling... I am in charge of a craft Monday for a class of first graders... I might have to adapt this a little and ditch the cheesy paper plate heart wreath that was planned...
