I never said I wouldn’t post more Valentine’s ideas…just that I thought you might be sick of them! I’ve given you a few, like our
- Valentine’s Day Lacing Hearts Activity
- Valentine’s Day Stained Glass Heart Cookies
- Valentine’s Day Jar of Hearts and
- Valentine’s Day Jello Play
but here’s one more – not necessarily the last!
I got this idea from who Liz of Made On Maple, who guest blogged at Toddler Approved during their 100 Acts of Kindness Project (still going on, by the way!). Our version was Salt Dough Heart Ornaments in a paper bag painted with hearts.
First, we made Salt Dough Hearts using the same recipe we used for our Salt Dough Handprints, only this time we used white flour instead of wheat flour and regular salt instead of coarse salt. This made for whiter, smoother, prettier salt dough pieces.
I punched holes in some of them to try a little lacing with baker’s twine and ribbon.
Jane shouldn’t get all the fun! (Although, if I had made the holes slightly larger, she would have been able to lace these salt dough ornaments, too).
Says a lot either about our age difference or our differences in personality! Which do you prefer? (Trick question).
We filled the bag with hearts and when Hubby came home from a business trip, we gave him a love attack!
