Valentines crafting with the Babes!

 Today I decided to do a Valentines craft with the babes. You know all those pictures you see on pinterest and craft places now with hearts all in a row in frames, on pillows, etc. well, I thought my girl could do that.

I cut the hearts out for her and placed glue dots on the paper (cheap version of glue dots - Elmer's glue dotted onto paper using the butt end of a paintbrush) and I showed her to put the hearts onto the glue and then let her go to town! She LOVED it, but it got a little messy towards the end.


Her finished masterpiece!

Are you going to frame it? It's adorable! :)

Love all aflutter! or Topsey turvy Love, which either explain love quite well. I also love that you don't try to make her make it perfect or shoo her off while the glue is still wet enough to "correct" (ha!) her placement. Art is freedom.
Blessings :o)

This is very cute and so simple and had me asking, "Why didn't I think of that?" Plus, it's great small motor practice!

I'm impressed. Mine ignores the items to stick on the paper and wipes her hand in the glue. New follower! Will you stop by and do the same?
