Grandma's Valentines Gift

Our boy has been busy making Valentine gifts for his two grandmothers. It is so sweet and heart warming to watch your children creating from their heart, a gift for another person.

Hopefully the receiver will see the love beyond surface appearances and see the heart from which it came.

These are the two different hearts that were made for two different grandmothers for Valentine's Day.

And below are the craft materials we used.

We found the plaster of Paris hearts at the craft store with the ribbon already attached. Everything else we already had.

              So the boys hands got busy painting and creating.

He decided he wanted to leave this heart with some of the white showing so it looked like a paper doily. Love that decision too.

Once the painting was complete and little sparkle of glitter was applied.

And applied a little more!

Here they are set off to the side to get good and dry before packaging them.

To package the hearts we used brown lunch sacks, parchment paper, hole punch, string and a free Valentine card from the very talented Kori Clark of Paper & Pigtails.

We used parchment paper since we were all out of white tissue paper. We wrapped the paper around the heart and tied it up with a piece of string.

And here is our finished decorated gift bag! We added  a piece of fun red yarn pom pom to make it a little more festive, it is for grandma after all he said.

                Love from a boy to his grandmothers is priceless.

What memories we create today with our children will last a lifetime. Teaching them to give unconditionally, without expecting something in return is a true gift of love. Happy Valentine's Day to all the grandmothers out there!

Do not say, “I will recompense evil”;
Wait for the Lord, and He will save you.

Proverbs 20:22
