Here’s another cute craft: Cupid’s Arrow.The idea was shown to us from the bright talent at 4 Cats while my daughter and I were there doing a workshop. If you are looking for a great kid-parent activity consider their workshops. The staff is amazing.
We saw these arrows at the cash and had to come home and give them a try.
You will need:
Sharpie Markers (we used red, pink and black)
Feathers (3 or more for each arrow)
Polymer clay (we used Sculpey’s Hot pink and Red)
Tape (we used red washi tape
Shape the hearts with either a small cookie cutter or your hand. Poke the skewer in to make a hole. Remove the skewer for baking. Bake according to Sculpey’s instructions. Meanwhile, colour your skewers with the Sharpie markers. Tape three feathers to the end. Once cooked, you can glue the hearts to the end of the skewer. Glue the cooked heart to the end and voila! A beautiful present topper or add a tag and you’ll have the most creative Valentines on the planet. Happy creating!
I love when you can tie books into craft projects. It deepens a child’s thinking and gives meaning to a concept outside of just “time to craft”. This project came from iheartcraftythings.com. Full instructions and material list can be found on their site here.
Love that it uses simple materials and builds on a super sweet story called (what else) The Day it Rained Hearts. Let it rain!
