Colour it RED
I attached string to the back of one heart by winding some thread twice round a piece of tape then attaching it.
Then I glued on another heart covering the tape, painted sides facing out. I made eight of these and tied the string to a pair of freebie wooden chopsticks. The chopsticks can be tied or glued together in an X shape (hot glue would probably work best, I just tied them) and then hang the hearts at various intervals. You’ll need to suspend the mobile from somewhere as you tie them to ensure that they balance out OK.
We already had a heart shaped sponge in our collection but it would be pretty easy to cut one out from a regular sponge if you didn’t have one.
A little bit of planning needed here. You could use white crayon on white card and then colour with red watercolour paint, but we’re still working on that technique, so I decided to make a heart from tape – which takes a little while! Then I asked my son to painted over the tape with white paint, but I had to keep a close eye on him as he wanted to peel the tape off!
F just loves contact paper and tissue paper! This time we made heart suncatchers as part of a crafty playdate at a friend’s house. I taped some contact paper to the floor (sticky side up) and the children stuck on red, pink and silver tissue paper. Then I laid another piece of contact paper over the top to seal it.
Then we cut out a heart shape. You can seal the edges with glue or tape if required. This is a great mess free activity and it would look great in a window to catch any winter sunshine!
I don’t have many photos for this as it was all done very quickly! When F was in his high chair I brushed red paint on to one foot, and took two prints. I cleaned off the paint. Then I repeated this with the other foot, getting the heels of the prints overlapping, so that a heart shape was formed. I drew a heart around the feet with a marker and cut around the heart. Then I mounted it on silver glitter card.
