#2 Project: Hearts

Typically, I am not a big fan of holiday-themed projects.

I will tell you why:

  • Holiday projects are very much product-oriented
  • The larger portion of creation is done by the grown up
  • The child has very little room for creativity

Despite that, I would like to share one idea that I decided to try after

I collected too many heart-shaped boxes. I suggest

to try this project with children older than 5 years old.

You will need the following materials:

  1. Provide variety of random, colorful small items. It is more

exciting when you use recycled items and therefore unpredictable

materials

  1. Heart-shaped boxes
  2. Bottles of glue

Process:

  1. Children discover and study items
  2. Children pour a bottle of glue into the box they choose
  3. Children gently drop items they choose into the box
  4. Wow! Check it out!

Enjoy !

Cheers,

Teacher Kira
