For Valentine’s Day this year, I made these kids some color-me heart stuffies, inspired by our decorate-a-monster stuffies! They were very simple to make: cut a heart shape out of muslin (twice), stitch together, trim seam allowance, stuff, stitch shut, add a face, and hand to kiddos to play with! We decorate ours with washable markers, so they can be decorated over and over!
Johnny was good friends with his stuffie from the start! The Heart Friends seemed to get along pretty well right off the bat:
And they are having lovely adventures together!
Emma loves Valentine’s Day, so we’ve done some fun activities through the years! The felt hearts we sewed last year still make their way around the house, the kids play with their flannel board felt hearts on a regular basis, and I think next week I’ll show Emma how to make a felt woven heart. Maybe we’ll make an “I love you” handprint card again, too! Emma is already hard at work on making her own valentines!
