Fun Heart Frame In Minutes

Well hello again. Want to see what we’ve been up to?

Honey Bunny and I had some time to spend so we decided to make something. We looked over our craft supplies and found some fun items to use.

What kid can resist stickers, glitter and markers? It doesn’t get any better than that!

Now what to make?

Craft Night Project With The Kids: Fun With Crafting Foam

I cut out a few red hearts from foam and glued them down in the center of the precut flower shapes.

I told Honey Bunny to keep that part clear so we could put a picture there when we were all done the decorating.

I don’t know what she heard because she got busy sticking down butterflies, a flower and a dragonfly right in the center of the heart.

l'm like, wait a sec Honey . . .  it looks really good!

Then she got out the glitter glue. A little here and a little there. It’s so pretty with all those sparkles.

See the concentration on her face. J

I tried to explain to Honey Bunny to put the glitter glue on last – just to make it easier – not to put her hand in the wet glue but she already had it down while I was busy decorating my flower.

Now out come the markers.

A little here and a little there. Beautiful.

ll done Grandma! And she’s off working on another one. She’s so creative.

That gave me enough time to finish my project. I found an old photo and attached it to my flower frame.

Not too shabby. Considering we didn't know what we were making when we started.

How about you. Do you always have a plan?
