In the Craft Room: Valentine's Day Kids Craft #1

And easy peasy one.
Using red pipe cleaners to make a heart garland.
You form a circle with them, squish it in half and the push down the top and a heart appears. :) Then link them together with little pieces of another pipe cleaner you cut up. Clear as mud?
I must confess two things.
1. it would look way cuter on a fireplace. But we don't have one of those. So the window it is!
2. My kids made about 4 hearts and then starting making all kinds of other shapes. Like lasso's and other such things. And Eli was trying to eat them... so I may have finished it myself.

I didn't get to the tradition one last night.
Regan had other ideas for FHE so we did that instead. (On goals)

And isn't this boy just the cutest?
