Valentines Day Craft – Conversation Hearts

Think back to your childhood Valentine’s Days….what is the one treat that stands out most vividly for you?  That’s right…conversation hearts.  Those hard, not terribly great tasting, heart-shaped candies with the sometimes witty-sweet sayings on them.  Rather than breaking your kid’s teeth with the rock hard-sweet treat why not try making a construction-paper version?  This quick and easy Conversation Hearts Valentine’s Day craft is perfect for a snowy afternoon home with the kids or special Valentine’s Day cards for loved ones.  You don’t need much, just some construction paper, a pair of scissors, and several glitter glue pens.

Valentine’s Day Conversation Hearts

Step 1: Fold the construction paper in half {or smaller if you want small hearts}. Cut hearts out of the paper.  This would be great to let your preschooler do with safety scissors, or you can do it yourself.

Step 2: Write cute sayings {like on the conversation hearts}on each heart {ie: “Be mine” or “Best Friends”} or let your child write their own sayings.  Now is the perfect time for your child to practice writing letters or penmanship.
