Here's a fun craft I will be doing with my evening Storytime kid's in a couple weeks. It's great for Valentine's Day and it uses some old puzzle pieces I saved years ago.
With a little prep work this craft can be done in a short amount of time.
What you will need:
- Popsicle sticks (12 each)
- Puzzle pieces
- Cardstock cut into hearts (about 3" big)
- Hot glue gun
- School glue
- Permanent marker
I made the popsicle frame ahead of time using hot glue. This is also a good time to add a piece of ribbon to the back of the frame for hanging.
Hint: Glue the puzzle pieces onto the heart and paint them before gluing to the frame. My first attempt above was glued to the frame before I painted it. It was a disaster.
Use school glue to attach the puzzle pieces on the heart and then paint them. Once the painted heart is dry (I will be reading a story during this time) use the glue to attach it to the front of the frame. With a permanent marker write: "Love You To Pieces". I'm going to let the kids write it out on their own-it will look so much better than mine!
