George wanted to make something with yarn. So we made a yarn heart craft with it!
We’ve done a few yarn crafts in the past, so I thought making one for Valentine’s Day would be a fun twist to make a heart! I quickly drew a large heart on a piece of scrapbook paper.
George and I then cut long pieces of yarn in various colors. I had red, pink, blue, green and orange.
Then we squirted glue all over the heart to get started. Our glue for some reason is impossible to squeeze. I even struggle getting it out. Apparently I need to do some of our activities for strengthening fine motor skills! George too!
I started him by outlining the heart with a piece of yarn.
And then George filled the heart in with the strands of yarn, in whatever direction he wanted!
He filled in the heart with yarn, piling it on, adding layers and texture.
I squirted more glue on as he went along every once in awhile to make sure it stayed in place.
I love how it has so much depth to it!
When George was finished with adding the yarn, I set it aside to dry and added a bit more glue to the top to once again make sure it stayed put.
Once dried, I cut the heart out of the paper and glued it onto another contrasting color to put on display for Valentine’s Day!

We even did another version of this yarn heart craft again that I hope to share with you soon!
