I think Jenna would have dyed paper hearts all day. After raiding a fair amount of our coffee filters, I finally had to tell her that we were out of hearts and would have to buy more at the store. Here’s how we made them:
First, I cut a bunch of hearts out of coffee filters.
Next, I prepared the dye using food coloring.
Then I let Jason and Jenna dip the hearts into the dye, just like making Easter Eggs.
And then Jenna added a extra drop of red on each one.
They had made over 60 hearts by the time I cut Jenna off. I think we’ll have a Valentine’s Day card-making activity soon!
