Valentine’s Ribbon Art

Valentine's Ribbon Art

It’s heart-tastic in our house at the moment! We’ve been using hearts to practice numeracy and adding up skills and now it’s time to do some creating ♥

I have a box full of random pieces of ribbon that I collect. I took a bunch of ribbons, placed them in a bowl and left out an invitation to create for the children.

I set out the following: a bowl of ribbons, a cardboard cut-out heart, a pair of scissors and some glue.

Miss 6 and Mr 8 quickly started cutting, glueing, adding their own little touches and sprinkling a good dose of glitter everywhere… The Elmer’s glue did make things a little messy and perhaps with hindsight, I might have used pritt stick instead!

It took very little time to prep the activity and they were both very pleased with their final pieces!
