Hello! I’m Leonie and I make a little Aussie kids magazine called Lotta Magazine. It’s filled with arts, crafts and activities to keep kids busy in the school holidays. Keeping in line with the ethos of Lotta, I wanted to make a heart craft for ‘The 31 Days of Love’ that both boys and girls would enjoy. So here it is, The Things They Love Concertina Book (not a very snappy name I know.) It’s a heart-shaped concertina book that kids can fill with drawings of the things and people they love. Not only is it fun to make but thinking about all the things and people you love is great for fostering gratitude in kids.

How to make your Prinable Heart Notebook for Valentines
- Choose which pages you would like to include in your book and print them out. There are two versions of these books included in the free printable: ‘The Things They Love’ pages include drawings prompts and ‘The People They Love’ pages are blank.
- Fold the heart template page in half horizontally along the dotted line, making sure that the sides of the paper line up. Then fold it in half vertically.
- Carefully cut along the heart shaped line, making sure your folded edges stay lined up.
- Refold the horizontal and vertical folds with the printed lines on the inside. Then fold the diagonal line with the printed lines on the outside. If that makes no sense what so ever, watch this video to see what I mean. Now your clover-shaped page can fold down into a heart.
- Repeat steps one to four for all the pages you want to use for your book.
- Cut out the front and back covers.
- Glue the folded heart pages together, carefully lining up the edges. Glue the heart covers on the front and back of the book.
- Now it’s time to draw the things or the people you love.
