Valentine's Tree Craft

Valentine's Tree Craft
I've been following local mom Leah Tyree on Instagram @hotcoffee_creativekids for at least a year now. Leah regularly shares seasonal crafts she creates to spark creativity, to promote learning through play and to occupy her three little ones so she might drink her coffee while it's hot. Not a particularly crafty person myself, I'm always so inspired by the originality and beautiful simplicity of her crafts for kids. In fact, I was so inspired that I asked if she'd share some of her ingenuity with us on Saskmom.com, and she graciously agreed! Enjoy! 💗Laura, aka Saskmom

Valentine's Tree Craft

I don't know about your kids, but on these cold winter days my little ones sometimes need a goal to get them outside and focused on something other than their cold toes! To prepare for this craft, their outdoor mission was to collect sticks.


For this craft you need: 
  • sticks
  • white card stock paper or cardboard
  • coloured construction paper
  • hot glue
  • glue stick or white school glue
To set this craft up, first I glued the sticks with hot glue to the white card stock in a tree formation.


Next, I layered the construction paper and folded it in half to make it easy to cut out multiple hearts at once.  Cut some bigger and some smaller.


Set out the cut-out hearts on a plate or tray and set out the glue for your little one. If you use white school glue, a popsicle stick works well for spreading.


Finally, have your little one decorate with the hearts however they desire. 
    This is a fun way to bring the outdoors inside for a lovely Valentine's Day craft and decoration.
