Just a quick reminder that you can get free entry to 124 National Parks today, February 20th, in honor of Presidents’ Day!
Here are the details:
- Join our hands-on workshop and you and your child can build a rain gauge house, so you and your budding scientist can measure the rain dropped by spring storms. Once the gauge is built, your child can paint their project to personalize it.
- All kids get to keep their craft, receive a FREE certificate of achievement, a Workshop Apron, and a commemorative pin while supplies last.
- Children must be present at the store to participate in the workshop and receive the kit, apron and pin.
Looking for a really simple Valentine’s Craft Idea for a craft night, or to give as a gift, or to make to hang on your wall? Try your hand at Heart String Art!
Our Discipleship Group at church had a day-long retreat in the fall and we did this fun Heart String Art craft (a big thank you to Chandra for organizing it and supplying the idea and all of the necessary items to create it!).
It was so simple to make, a great group activity, and each person’s turned out different.
To make this, you’ll need a piece of wood, small nails, a hammer, yarn, and a heart template printed on paper. (There are a lot of different heart templates in different sizes available to print here.)
Place the heart template on your board where you’d like it. Some people did there’s off to the side, some did it at an angle, some people did theirs centered like I did mine.
Hammer nails evenly around the heart. Tear away the paper so only the nails are still on the board in a heart shape.
Cut a piece of string/yarn at least 5 yards long. Tie one end on a nail and then have fun creatively stringing it on the heart however you so desire. Have fun — there is no right or wrong way to do this!
Hammer a sawtooth picture hanger on the back and you’re done! I was so happy with how my finished heart looked!
