I got a head start with our Valentine’s Day decorating the other day and thought I’d share what I had my 3 year old daughter make. She loved making this garland so much that the next day we made more and now they are all over our house. I love seeing how proud she is to show it to anyone who comes to our house.
Valentine’s Day Craft for Kids – Toilet Paper Roll Painted Garland
I cut the toilet paper roll into 1″ sections and shaped them into a heart. I used a piece of tape across the top help hold the shape. We added some paint to a paper plate and she stamped the hearts in the paint and onto her paper. Then she added lots of polka dots with her finger.
Once it was dry, I cut it into 3.5″ x 5.5″ rectangles and mounted them on coordinating cardstock then we stapled each to a length of ribbon, hot glued some pom pom’s and hung them on the door! I love that we can get this out each year to decorate our home with and it’s got her “stamp” on it. 🙂
