My first-grader and I made these candy-filled valentine hearts for the valentine's exchange at school. They are very simple to make with items that you probably already have on hand.
You will need: construction paper, heart-shaped template, paper punch, yarn, yarn needle, stickers and candy.
Cut hearts out of construction paper and use the paper punch to punch holes around the edges.
With the yarn needle and yarn, whipstitch two hearts together leaving a 4 to 5 inch tail at both ends. Leave the top center hole open.
After the hearts are sewn together, names can be written on the valentines and stickers or other decorations can be added.
Slide candy into the hearts and then insert the tails through the top center hole from back to front and tie a bow.
