How to Make Nature Hearts
This craft is truly simple. All you need is a few materials and a little creativity.
If you buy a small bundle of wooden hearts, they’re all going to get used up too. Trust me!
Here’s how to make nature hearts:
- Enjoy some time outside with your child collecting natural materials.
- Set up a table with all the natural materials on it so that your child can see everything they have available to them.
- Get your child to add quite a lot of glue to one side of the heart. Children may need help with this depending on their age.
- Let your child decorate their hearts with natural materials.
- Once it’s dry you can write a little note on the back and give it away to someone special, or make it into a heart wand.
- To make your nature heart craft into a heart wand all you have to do is glue the stick onto the back of the heart using the glue gun. Easy!
