An Activity for School-age Children
Before You Begin:
12" x 18" construction paper, yarn, yarn needle, decorating materials
Economical and easy solution to collecting Valentine's cards.
Let's Get Started
Fold two pieces of 12" x 18" construction paper together in half
Cut a large wide heart out starting at the center fold
Punch holes in 2-3" intervals along the edge of both hearts (pieces of paper still together)
Begin "sewing" the two pieces of paper together with the yarn, going through each hole
The heart is now ready for decorating!
Cut a 48" long piece of yarn and tie to the top edge of one of the hearts where the hole punch is
When at the other side of the heart, tie the end in a knot
The finished heart can be hung or taped to desks ready to receive Valentine's!
