Heart Wreath

I wanted to let everyone know that if you notice I am not visiting your blogs as much please do not think I have stopped reading them. My husband is home for 3 weeks and I can not let him see that all I do all day is blog. I will do my best to keep up, but in 3 weeks things will be back to normal. I love you guys.
M
y daughter made these on Saturday. Not the Heart wreaths are all that original idea, I just wanted to show you small kids can do crafts and I will show you how I help my 2 year old.


Cheyanne's Wreath
She is 2.














Caity's Wreath

She is 6.
















First,I cut out a bunch of different shaped heart. Then I cut out the center of a paper plate.






I out glue on a paper plate and let her spread it on with a Popsicle stick or a Q-tip. That way you do not have to let them use a bottle of glue. Of course you can use a glue stick to, but they do not always stick that well.
Here she is putting one side of the heart in the glue and that works too.

Yes, it is true that young kids can do crafts too...I am getting into doing crafts more and more with my 1 1/2 yr. old - he LOVES it! :) Have a good time with you hubby...I'm not around as much either on the days that my hubby is home. :)

I never did crafts much with my daughter because she was not interested and would literally tear things up just to make me mad. My granddaughter has such a different temperment that I sometimes wonder if she really is my daughters child. Reading your post has me wanting to try with her. One of my biggest problems is just letting them do what they want and NOT what I want.

Keep up with the great ideas.

Melanie said...

ha! I know what you mean- whenever my hubby is home I have to seriously cut down on the blogging time.

Thanks for playing along on Meme Monday!

This craft seems like something pretty simple I might try with Hailey.

You do so many cute things with your kiddos!

I did a google search for Valentines treats. Up pops your post for Marshmallow Treat Pops. Those are so darn cute, and the treat I've decided to make BTW. Anyhow, I decided to browse the whole blog.

My mouth dropped. You blog more in a day than I do in a month. And you have some wonderful crafts and food. I've printed sereral posts that I couldn't live without (Pudding Cones, SnoBall Love bugs, Cinnamon Biscuit Bites). I'm bookmarking you for sure.

I'd have to say from looking over your blog, that you are a mom every kid would love to have :)

Very nice, I made those with the kids when they were younger. Yes, I have to hide my blog addiction from hubby too...

Joanna said...

Enjoy the time together. Your secret is safe with us.
How do you keep from spilling the beans? It seems like I always start a sentence of 'I read this on someone's blog'.

Lauren@Baseballs&Bows said...

My daughter and I will be doing this tomorrow! Thanks!

MamaGeek said...

OH my, this made me giggle. I love the thought of your husband finding out how much you blog. Here, here!

LOVE THAT wreath. Enjoy your time!

Sue said...

I swear you have the BEST ideas. I love it.

my4kids said...

I have to watch my time on blogs when the hubby is home also. I totaly get it. He already thinks I spend to much time on them...
Thanks for your comment on my blog. I love our template by the way too cute!
Love the idea. I homeschool my youngest daughter right now and I'm always looking for ideas for crafts.

girlymom said...

My oldest doesn't have school the rest of the week because of teacher conferences, this is a great idea to keep her busy~ thanks!

Chrissy said...

Those wreaths are so sweet. I love seeing crafty kiddos in the making!

Sniz said...

Fun! My kids are older, but still love to do crafts. They like to make beaded jewelry and polymer clay stuff. I'd like to get into with them, but between homeschooling and blogging, there's not much time left, you know? ":-)

Pieces said...

Very sweet! I've done this at Christmas time by cutting handprints out of green construction paper. You do a great job of step by step photos.
