PAPER PLATE HEART WHEEL VALENTINE’S DAY CRAFT
Hi I’m Shikha from The Joy of Sharing. I love sharing easy, fun & educational crafts for kids. I’m a mom of a preschool girl who is my craft conspirator & co-creator. And I’m super excited to be a part of this awesome 31 days of Love series. Thanks to Maggy for giving me the opportunity to share this craft in the series.
Celebrating our love for our family
The season of hearts is fast approaching. Soon, Valentine’s day will be here treating us to reds of love, affection and friendships. After all, love is such a beautiful feeling and so nurturing for everyone, especially children. Kids are blessed with such pure emotions that is a special feeling to be loved by them or to give them our love.
We think kids should be taught to recognize and express their feelings so they can form lasting friendships and relationships with their family, teachers and friends. We decided to celebrate the love our daughter has for family and friends by creating this cute and easy heart wheel craft!
Add photos of loved ones
It was fun to know about who/what our daughter loves and enshrine it forever in this wheel of hearts. We hope you will try this activity having your own fun discovery and memories. For additional fun, use real pictures of your loved ones in the wheel.
Wish you a very happy day of love and expression!
