friday craft day: pretty patterned hearts

It was feeling like forever since the kids and I had done something crafty and as luck would have it, on my last trip to our storage unit, I stumbled upon some of our old art supplies! I brought them home with the intent to create something pink and valentines-y with the kids ASAP and when the weather got just a little to cold for us to handle this last week, we seized the opportunity to work on a simple little valentines project inside where its warm. :)
Nothing fancy happening here. Just some paper, a few water-colour paints and a pair of scissors are needed.  The kids set to work filling sheets of paper with patterns in reds and pinks for valentines day. I loved seeing all the fun patterns they came up with. After their papers had dried we cut hearts out of the patterned paper and this is what we were left with…
I love the way they look hanging in the window with the light shining through them, but there are so many ways you could display these cute hearts around the house. Just a super simple project {that’s how we like to do things around here} but the kids had fun with this for over an hour and I can totally see us doing it again sometime with different holiday shapes and colors! 

Have a great weekend ya’ll! 

I’ll be back on Sunday for the simple things
We’ll see you then!
