I can’t say I’ve ever been one to decorate for Valentine’s Day, but this year my son asked if we could. He’s such a love bug!
Oh right, I forgot about the scissors. OK, before I continue, can we all agree that scissors don’t count as an ingredient? Sure, we could rip paper with our bare hands. And in some instances that might work, but for this one, not so much.
Good. Now that we have the scissor thing settled…
If your kid is skilled with scissors, they can have at cutting up the tissue. I ended up jumping in too since my son was ready to move on after a few minutes. If you’re willing to do all the cutting, this is a great craft for toddlers.
We cut up a few sheets of tissue paper in reds, pinks and white. We kinda cut more than we actually needed. The large pile of paper scraps created a fun sensory play moment for my son, and he started throwing the pieces in the air like confetti, claiming we were having a Valentine party. Very cute, but to curb the mess I quickly got a piece of contact paper in front him!
Last, we cut heart shapes and used a small piece of tape to attach them to the window (a tape circle pulls easily off the window). You could also call this a stained glass heart (An idea inspired by the colors Kiwi Crate).
What are you making for Valentine’s Day with your love bug?
