Sweetheart Collage

This is such a simple Valentine craft idea, but effective! Little children especially love scrunching up tissue paper, and even the youngest can get involved.

Matilda made this when she was 2.

Cut a heart shape out of card. Now is the time for your child to write a message on the back if required! Then cover part of the surface with school (PVA) glue. Give the children small squares of pink or red tissue paper to be scrumpled up and stuck on. Do a section at a time and be prepared to help fill in the gaps when they are not looking if you are a perfectionist!

When the glue is dry, punch a hole in the top and string the heart with ribbon.
