What We Did This Weekend: Valentine Love Trees

Did you see last week’s post about the re-installment of the What We Did This Weekend segment? I’m excited to bring you a neat craft idea this week that the whole family can enjoy. This Love Tree Valentine craft from One Creative Mommy is a fun idea. It’s something that a small child can partake in, as well as older children. The craft is also a nice stash buster. I had all the supplies for this craft (and then some!) already in my supply closet.

My daughter and I spent Sunday afternoon with paint, markers, and glitter glue. One Creative Mommy cut each of her arms out individually, but we made a tree picture with ours and painted them.

After tracing our arms on the paper and painting them, we then went crazy with foam heart cut outs. Maybe a bit too crazy. Then, the glitter glue made an appearance. Yes, we love some glitter glue. I had fun outlining the hearts with glitter glue while my daughter made “flowers”.
