Valentine’s day craft – simple wall decor

Valentine day wishes from our family to yours :) XOXO!

We enjoyed making this simple “Love” wall decor and couldn’t resist sharing it here. As usual this activity involves lots of fine motor skills.

Materials used:

Construction paper (worth buying at dollar store)
Child safe scissors
Photo Frame (optional, again, a dollar store find)

Step 1: Ask your child to cut the construction paper into small strips (more like paper confetti). If you have a hole punch that would make a wonderful fine motor activity too.

Step 2: Draw a heart shape (parent can help with this) and trace it with glue. Using (liq) glue requires more practice than glue stick.
