While Gracie and I were shopping this past weekend, we got a few extra supplies. I allowed Grace to pick all of them, so we got a lot of pink foam hearts and purple foam hearts and foam dogs. I added some glittery red foam stickers and magnets, and we were ready to go.
I have to point out that the roll of stick-on magnet I bought cost me 59 cents. The glittery foam stuff was $6.99. How bizarre is that?
One of the hearts that Grace chose was really large, about four inches across. We started with those. I let Grace go crazy with the rest of the foam stickers, and I encouraged her to cover the other hearts.
That was the bulk of the project. It happened so fast that I got only one picture of the whole thing.
After finishing the stickers, I asked Grace which one she wanted to give to each of the people on our list. She assigned them, and I wrote each recipient’s name on the back of the heart so that I wouldn’t forget.
After Grace moved on to a new activity, I cut magnets from the roll and stuck them to the back of the hearts.
The only step left is to give them to our friends!
