Paper Strip Heart

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

This is a simple cut and paste paper craft that lets young children practice pattern making to create a pretty heart for Valentine's Day. You could also use it as a card/gift on Mother's Day or the birthday of someone you love.

You can easily turn this craft into a home made Valentine's Day card -- once the glue is dry, simply print a message on your heart and give it to a friend.
