Valentine's Day Decorations: String of Hearts

You can hang this string of hearts in any festive location for Valentine’s Day. Be sure to decorate the hearts with names or images of your loved ones.

Tools and Material

  • Red construction paper
  • White construction paper
  • Scissors
  • String
  • Fingerpaints
  • Glue sticks and hot glue gun

You can enlist the help of your child for this Valentine’s Day decoration! Hand over the white constructon paper to your child and allow her to fill the paper with their original fingerpaint masterpieces!

Meanwhile, practice tracing hearts until you’re happy with the finished product. You will use this as a template to cut out other hearts from the red and white construction paper. Alternately, a heart-shaped cookie cutter makes the perfect template!

Once the fingerpaint masterpieces have dried, use your template to trace out as many hearts as you can from your construction paper. Glue the hearts onto the decorative string; decide for yourself how much space you’d like between each heart.

Once your string of hearts are completed, hang them up!

Have a very happy Valentine’s Day!
