Hello Everyone! Happy Saturday!
Monday is Valentine’s Day and we have a links to a few really simple and sweet crafts you can do with your kids. One of my favorite is this woven paper heart: all you need is two pieces of different colored paper. You can watch a video by Kidspot.au.
You could also make it with felt if you want it to last longer. Or make two and weave them together into a basket. Apparently this is a Danish craft called jelehjerters! Watch the video by Mr. Otter’s art studio:
A really cute up-cycling STEM craft is this easy love bug robot from Inner Child Fun Media made from a piece of a pool noodle, an old electric toothbrush, pipe cleaners, google eye, and tissue paper…though I’m sure you can decorate it with whatever you have on hand. If you don’t have a pool noodle, you could probably use a cardboard paper towel tube stuffed with tissue paper or plastic wrap to keep the toothbrush in place. The toothbrush is what makes it vibrate and move around of course.
These two little girls Bryn and Scout at Nature for Kids have a super sweet valentine’s idea of decorating a plain old stick with paint and a note that says, “let’s Stick together!” You can also tie on different colored strings threaded with beads or tie on feathers.
Let us know if you have any other ideas to share about how to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your kids in Berlin! Check back for more fun posts later in the week.
