Over the weekend I was pinning while nursing the babe and came across this cute, simple Valentines craft. Sure, maybe it's a tad early to start with the Valentines crafts but since Christmas is all packed up I'm ready to get a few Valentine's decorations out as I'm missing my 'decorated' house. I saw this craft, knew we easily had everything we needed and as soon as the babe was asleep, we headed downstairs to get our craft on.
All you need:
empty toilet paper tube
white sheet of paper
markers/crayons if you want
We covered the toilet paper roll in the white paper (to make it look a little nicer) Then I gave the kids strips of my paper tape (from Target in the office supply section) They loved this because usually I'm telling them not to play with my tape.
Once it was taped we added a heart, complete with a googly eye face. At first they didn't want to draw anything on their heart faces.
But when we sat down for lunch, they changed their minds and added features. Abby added eyelashes, a mouth and short blond/brownish hair - she says it looks like baby Lexie. I love her sweet little eyelashes!
Micah did a fabulous job on his face too and added a mouth and hair - all by himself!
Then the cute Valentine craft became a telescope/eye glass. That's a boy for you!
A simple, not too complicated but still cute Valentines craft that both my kids loved.
