threaded heart valentines
To create these adorable hearts, kids will need white cardstock, light worsted (aka thin) yarn, a large threading needle, a pencil with eraser, and heart template (like a cookie cutter). Using the cookie cutter, lightly trace the shape of a heart on the center of the card. Then use the threading needle to carefully punch holes along the shape of the heart, and once finished, erase the pencil mark. Thread the needle, and criss-cross yard across the shape of the heart until all of the holes are threaded, and tie off on the back when finished. For a multi-colored heart, tie off yarn after threading only a few holes and then switch to a different color, using as many shades as you like.
