crafting with grandma - Mother's Day Heart Gift!

Mother's Day is just a few weeks away so I thought I'd share another gift idea which you could help your grandchildren make for their mom. I was browsing on Pinterest and found an idea for a heart craft your grandchildren could have a lot of fun making for their mom! It is also a craft which you could help your grandchildren with depending on the level of help they need - older grandchildren would need little help and younger grandchildren would need more, but it is a craft which many children could make!

All you need is a piece of wood, some nails, paint and then some lengths of string, yarn, beads, whatever you want to use to string around the nails! Select a piece of wood, have your grandchildren sand the edges and then paint. When the paint dries, hammer the nails in the shape of a heart and allow your grandchildren to wind the string, yarn, beads - whatever you have to make their "Heart". Use old magazines to cut letters to spell a message and glue in place . . . you might be able to add a photo of the child and mom in the middle of the heart in place of the arrow - I think a photo would add a really special touch to this gift! This is all there is to it . . . fun to make and a great gift to give . . . perfect for Mother's Day!
