To make this wreath you will need a paper plate with the centre cut out. Paint this red or green. Leave to dry. Cut out lots of hearts in christmasy paper – a paper punch like the one in the photo will save a lot of time. Older children could use one but I would prepare the hearts ahead of time. Glue these to the paper plate wreath. Add ribbon.
You could use coloured paper plates but make sure the glue you have sticks to them, especially if they look shiny. Wired ribbon will hold a bow shapes fairly well. I bought the one in the photo from Costco.
Valentine day craft.
Print a circle on to card for each child. Either cut them out for the children or let older children do that for themselves.
Print red and white hearts and again either cut them out for the children or let them do that themselves. They could add the names of family members to the hearts.
The ribbon can either be the verse from 1 John or blank for the child’s name. The children could colour this.
Let the children arrange the ribbon and hearts as they wish and then they can stick them down with glue.
I’ve included Pdf files of the templates.
