Valentine Heart Necklaces.

We have been having fun before Valentine’s Day.

Because Sophia is 3 years old now, she understands more, so I can explain her the traditions and the history of Valentine’s Day. I am not sure if she gets all of it, but some of the stuff she really recognizes: hearts, chocolate candies, flowers, hugs and kisses:)

One of our project last week was making Valentine Heart Necklaces, which took us a few days, but it was really fun and I would love to share it with you.

When the paint had dried, we cover them with acrylic sealer.¬†Finally, we added 25″ long skinny ribbon and made lots of bright pretty necklaces.
