There is less than 2 weeks until Valentine’s Day, so the boys and I have been making the most of our days at home, crafting up a storm. Last weekend I completed this Valentine’s present artwork for my hubby. It records all the important locations in our relationship. You can read that post here.
Yesterday, I pulled a Valentine’s craft idea out of the recesses of my brain. Somehow I recalled that last year, Rust and Sunshine had posted a tutorial on how to make a heart stamp out of a toilet roll. You can check out their tutorial here. Such a fun idea for the kiddies.
All it involved was squashing a toilet roll until it made a heart shape. The tutorial recommended taping this shape in place, but I found my roll stayed in a nice heart shape all by itself. A little red paint to dip into, some craft paper and we were away.
We completed some wrapping paper before sleep time beckoned. Later today I thought we would make some matching gift and greeting cards.
At times I struggle to come up with interesting and do-able craft ideas to do with my 14-month-old, but this was a winner. Both my boys had a lot of fun and it all looked so cute.
