Special valentine gifts: A Sprinkling of Love Throughout the Day

Hearts All
This jar of hearts is for 14 excited yet nervous preschoolers. Each heart will be filled with love from a parent and slipped into a pocket. And in that pocket each little heart will be a gentle reminder of calm during the first day of a new school year.

Special valentine gifts: A Sprinkling of Love Throughout the Day

Hearts 1a
On Valentine's day I'll be spreading these hearts around the house – on pillows, in lunch bags, hidden in shoes and next to favorite toys. A sprinkling of love throughout the day!

And you can make some too...
You’ll need:
Felt
Embroidery floss
Fiberfill (stuffing)
Needle
Scissors

Cut out a heart shape (if you plan on making a lot draw a simple pattern out of paper and pin it to the felt).
Using 1 strand of embroidery floss sew the heart with blanket stitch or running stitch. Remember to leave an opening big enough to stuff.
Stuff heart – be careful not to overfill.
Sew up the opening.
Repeat and place in all your kids’ favorite places for little eyes to find.
