(I found this craft in a book I grabbed at the library called All New Crafts for Valentine's Day by Kathy Ross)

My 2 girls and I each made one.  I think they both did much better than me!

You can use pipe cleaners for the handle if you have them on hand.  We never have those things!

My 7 year old made this one...

My 5 year old made this one.  Check out that mouth!  I did not tell her that hers scared me a little bit.

Valentine's Day is such a great time to spend some quality time making crafts with your little ones.  They just love it when YOU get involved in the craft.  My girls love to see what I come up with.  It just makes them giddy. :)




Have a great weekend!

Blessings,
Gina

I'll be linking up to some of THESE great parties!
