crafting with grandma - Valentine Elephants!

Forget-Me-Not ElephantIf you decide to involve your grandchildren in a project to help raise money for Samaritan's Purse Children's Heart Project, these little elephants I found on Pinterest could be the perfect Valentine's Day craft for your project! If you are looking for a different, unique and creative card project, these Forget-Me-Not Elephants from Disney Family Fun, are cute, fun and just right!

Just follow the link above and you'll find photo directions and a template you could print out for your elephants! Consider making a "herd" of elephants with your grandchildren, tuck an individually wrapped candy in each elephant and then sell them to raise money for your Children's Heart Project! 


As you make these elephants with your grandchildren, talk with them about why you are making and selling these cards and lead them in praying for the children who will receive heart surgery through the Children's Heart Project. Pray for Samaritan's Purse as they select the children to participate and find sponsors/hosts who provide homes for the children and families while they are here in the States for their surgery. Pray, most importantly, for these children and families so as they experience the "making whole" of their physical bodies, they will also come to know and love Jesus - as only He can make them spiritually whole!
