Brambleberry Cottage is hosting two craft themes for Days 6 and 7, so I am combining them here. I always loved having the children in my classroom create crafts that a parent would treasure and be proud to have on display. These open hearts were easy to make by gluing puzzle pieces onto cardboard. The kids got to use lots of glue and learned to have some patience while the first layer dried. Depending on how much time there was, we added up to three layers of overlapping pieces. The only thing I did was spray paint them so they'd be pretty. Either magnets or hangers can be attached to the back side. Sometimes we did these puzzle shapes at Christmas time to look like miniature trees.
The children also made cards/books for their parents using their very best penmanship. This year I used the same poem to make one for a card swap. It is on its way to be delivered next week.
Pictures of all the pages ...
pages are 'off center' so the edges could be scored to make a neat fold and then stacked in order to 'bind' with ribbon.
Enjoy all the other craft ideas. There's still time to join in and make family and friends a special remembrance for next Sunday.
