Crafting with the kids

Now that our Valentine's collection is completed and online for all to see....(There are still a few more lovely ornaments left waiting for homes so you can check out the designs here)..we now can dedicate this whole week to our favorite little love bugs and spend this week creating some fun Valentine's crafts. A bit less stressful, dontcha think?

Today, on this cloudy, cold and rainy day we made some pretty neat stained glass hearts.

We came across this project in a magazine recently and after reading the supply list we realized that we have everything on hand, which is a big plus. Wax paper, scissors, an iron, ribbon, hole punch and crayon bits are all we needed, we just had to try it.

The kids ready got into it. Spreading the bits of crayons all over the wax paper.

Our little one watching very closely and she didn't even eat the crayons. Yeah!

Stand back iron is HOT! Make sure you iron onto a paper towel because the crayon will bleed through onto your table. Thanks goodness these were washable crayons.

Pretty! A nice kaleidoscope of colors. We let it cool and then had the kids trace a heart and cut it out and hung it in the window.

Happy Valentine's Day!
