Fuzzy Valentines

I was asked to come up with a Valentine’s Day craft for the pre-school.
So I thought, what’s more fun than a bowl full of pom-poms??!

Fun for all ages.

I love a simple project that uses everyday items from around the house.
And I love a craft that you can also giveaway to friends and teachers.

Of course you can make these so many different ways….with cardstock, on top of old cereal boxes, on reclaimed wood?  That would be cool.  Here’s what we did:

• It helps to draw the heart first with pencil, to make sure you have the shape you want.  Then trace with a thick permanent marker.  Don’t worry about making it perfect.  Some of the outline will be covered with pompoms.
• Write your expression out before gluing pompoms.
• Use Elmer’s type glue, rather than a glue stick.
• Sharpies work better than Crayola type markers, but they tend to dry quickly as you write.  So draw/write over everything twice.
• If you’re making these for young children, pre-write all the expressions on each plate so all they do is glue and attach pom-poms.

Then, decorate the edges or add more messages to the plate:

If you don’t have pom-poms (you can purchase them in large bags at most craft stores)…use cotton balls!

Happy Valentine-ing weekend.
I’m cheering for you….with every pom pom!

    How do you come up with these things?!? These are adorable and just too perfect for little ones! Thx for the inspiration :))

    Fantastic! how long was your drying time? 🙂

      Probably a couple of hours. If you do the project earlier during class time it should have time to dry before they take it home—at least that’s what I’m hoping for tomorrow when we make them!

  4. That’s such a cute idea! So simple too, my favorite kind of project :).

  5. Love these! I used little cork pieces left over from a backsplash project we did – our nephews and nieces loved them!

      What a fun idea!

  6. Very creative Dana. I like that give such doable projects. Thanks, Preethi.

  7. Howdy! Someone in my Facebook group shared this website with us so I came
    to look it over. I’m definitely loving the information.
    I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my followers!
    Superb blog and amazing design.

  8. Quality articles or reviews is the main to be a focus for the visitors to visit the website,
    that’s what this website is providing.

  9. The overwhelming sentiment was that a glassy, polished forehead is no longer the norm and
    that more and more clients are opting for fewer units in this area to allow for maximal lifting
    of the brows. Packages are available that include ground transportation, procedure and
    hotel stay. How about, it’s my dog, it’s my property, I don’t care what
    others think or do.

  10. I love this idea! I’m adding it to my file of craft ideas to use in my classroom- the kids will have so much fun with it.

  11. We’re a group of volunteers and starting a new
    scheme in our community. Youur website offered uus with valuable info to work on. You have done an impressive job
    and our entire community wkll be thankful to you.

    Do you buy that gloss glaze at a local hardware store? Or would it be easier to get online?
