Plant a Kiss Valentines Kids Craft

Have you read the book Plant a Kiss? We picked it up last week at the library and to my surprise, my daughter has asked for me to read to her every night at bedtime. It’s a really simple book, not many words in it, but has a great meaning about what can be accomplished with just a little bit of love. My daughter asked me the other night if we could plant our own kiss so I thought up this fun little Plant a Kiss Craft to go along with the book.

Supplies you will need:



Directions:

1. Start by painting the bottom of your small paper plate with brown paint and let it dry completely. After it is dry, have an adult cut a small X in the middle of the paper plate.
2. Cut your pipecleaners in half. Poke one of the pipecleaners through the hole in the plate and tape a section of it down on the unpainted side of the plate. Bend the pipecleaner in the front so it pokes up. Continue doing the same with the rest of the pipecleaners.
3. Use your heart punch (or scissors) to cut hearts out of your pink and red cardstock paper. Use your stapler to staple the hearts to the pipecleaners. You will need to make sure to staple the hearts with the front of the staple over the pipecleaner so it holds onto the pipecleaners. I let my daughter position the heart then helped her with the stapler.
4. Finish your craft by decorating the hearts with pink and red glitter glue.
Now you have your own little sprout of LOVE!
