Valentine's Day is all about celebrating people in your life that you love. Your child can join in by giving little tokens of her affection. This pretty frame makes a great gift for friends or family, and will last a lot longer than a box of chocolates. Plus, the process requires fine motor skills, which will help with pencil grip, and simple patterning ability, a key component to early math.
What You Need:
- An inexpensive, plain white china picture frame
- Craft glue
- Conversation hearts
What You Do:
- Take a couple handfuls of conversation hearts. Let your child choose between sweet and silly messages, and varying colors.
- Put dots of glue on the back of each conversation heart, and glue them to the frame in any pattern. Let dry.
- Remind your child that these candies are no longer edible.
- Add a photo of your child (of course!) Or, if your child is giving this frame as a gift to a friend, try finding a picture of your child and her friend doing something fun together.
