Encourage your little ones to unleash their creativity by introducing these whimsical cardboard heart cookies to their imaginary bakeshop, adding a sweet touch to their Valentine’s Day playtime.
Our Valentine’s celebration has been a blast with various crafts and activities. To add a delightful touch, we decided to whip up some simple and fun cardboard heart cookies, making our celebration even sweeter.
Exciting news – our Carioca Temperello arrived yesterday! My boys wasted no time and dived into today’s crafts. We’ve been fans of these solid poster sticks in Suriname, and their vibrant colors are just what we need. Not only are they perfect for little hands, but they also dry remarkably quickly, making crafting even more enjoyable.
Adding these cardboard cookies to your kids’ pretend bakeshop is a delightful way to spark their imagination. My boys thoroughly enjoyed pretending to bake these heart-shaped treats in their miniature kitchen, serving them alongside their other toys.
How to make cardboard hearts:
- Recycled cardboard
- White paper
- Carioca Temperello poster paint sticks
- Pipe cleaners
- Small pompoms
- Cut hearts from the cardboard.
- Cut hearts from the white paper, the same size as the cardboard hearts.
- Cut a swirling pattern on the edges of the white hearts (they should be smaller than the cardboard hearts after this).
- Paint the white hearts with paint sticks.
- Attach the white hearts on top of the cardboard hearts.
- Put glue on top of the white hearts and decorate with pipe cleaners, confetti, and small pompoms.
