Do you remember making your first folded construction paper heart? Do you recall the awe of opening the fold to see the whole heart trimmed from the folded paper for the first time? It was magic. Share this magic to your children. Make simple construction paper hearts together.
You may spend so much time look for fancy Valentine projects to make. You may spend so much time looking for the supplies to make those fussy Valentine's Day projects. So much time searching, shopping, setting up to make an all-amazing, best-ever Valentine project. So much time you could be spending with your child, making something simple—with 3 simple supplies you already have in your home—paper, scissors, and your time.
Share the awe and wonder of creating folded paper hearts with your own children. Together. Like the very first ones you made as a child.
Share your love. Simply.
above A collaborative labor of love—our family's wall of paper hearts. We used inexpensive, classic construction paper to make our folded paper hearts. The making of our hearts was a peaceful, contemplative time together. This family time was sprinkled with light-hearted laughter at our very-much-less-than-perfect hearts sometimes surprising us when opening our cut paper folds for the first times. So enjoyed was our time together, that the children have pulled out the paper and the scissors to add to our cherished paper heart wall on a whim. ©heather cahoon • wordplayhouse®
