* Valentine Button Heart Sign Craft



This is a fun little project my oldest "E" whipped up 
and I realized it would be a perfect Valentine's Day
Decoration for your house, front door, or classroom!

I know that the word "craft"can connote a certain association
with "do it this way and everyone's project  will look the same"...
This little heart craft can be done, (and I encourage it to be done) 
any way your child, the artist, wants.

Don't want to make a heart?  Make a different shape. How about a Star?
Don't want to do "Valentine" colors? How about a Rainbow Spectrum
or  Warm colors and Cool colors on two halves, or Your child's favorite color!


She started with a simple wooden heart from the craft store
but I think you could make this just as easily from a piece of cardboard box
(or cut a piece from a cereal box).

Add a piece of yarn (or ribbon) to your heart (or shape of your choice)
so you can hang it up! 

Paint it pink  (or red, or white,  lavender...or Rainbow!)

Then, crack out some craft glue (we like Elmer's school glue)
and add some buttons! 


Happy "Crafting"!

Fondly,
pink and green mama,

I love it! I love the creativity that comes out of littles!
This reminds me of valentines envelopes we used to make at school to gather up all the valentines from our friends. It would be really easy to make it from sheets of tagboard, glued along the bottom edge. Fun stuff! Thank you for sharing!
