Happy Valentines

Usually I'm not so into Valentines Day but for the kids and for the crafting.  This week we've done a little bit of valentine making with each child choosing someway to give a little card or gift. Soap carving was fun, messy and wrapped and ready to give to Grandma within the hour. Our first try at homemade chocolates we all enjoyed; the licking, the pouring, the waiting and deciding who would get which chocolates. And of course the hearts....made with pipe cleaners, with marbled paintings and used by mama to write little notes of why each one is so special.

Hope every one's day is especially loving and full of what we'll be focusing on...

Just curious - how did you make the hearts with pipe cleaners? Very clever!
