Last year, I showed how to make a woven heart for Valentine’s Day. (See the picture shown here.) When I transferred my grandmothering ideas from my other hosting company to this one, that information got lost in the transfer. So, I thought that I would post it again this year.
Here are the directions for the woven hear. It is a PDF file that you can print up and follow to help you make your own.
|Here is a movie to help you see how to make it.|
I have also seen some pretty heart shaped boxes that I think would be fun to make with your granddaughters.
|Go here to make this ‘modern day’ keepsake box.|
|Go here to make this Victorian looking keepsake box.|
|Go here to make this heart shaped box covered with colorful tissue paper. (Scroll to the bottom of the page for the directions.)|
I hope this gives you a couple of ideas of fun activities you can do with your granddaughters. Throw in lots of hugs, kisses, giggles, and of course conversation heart candies and you’ll create memories that will last a lifetime.
Happy Valentine’s Day,
