snow day valentines :: kid projects

the kiddos have been off school the last couple days. the first day, we could play outside in the snow. today, however, the temps have dipped below zero so we're stuck inside. are you? if so, i thought i'd provide a little inspiration for you and your bored little ones.

both crafts are super simple. the first uses a toilet paper roll as a paint brush or stamp. just fold the tube as a heart and dip in paint. my boys stamped heart shapes all over construction paper and then we used that as a background for multiple valentines.

the second involves cutting, so it is best for 4-years and older. we folded a piece of paper and then traced our hands, with the thumb and index finger pressed against the folded side. then cut and unfold. when turned upside down, the space between these two fingers creates a heart shape.

what have you been doing to pass the time?
