Valentine Heart Project

This is actually a school assignment that lead to a Valentine theme.  My 6 year old daughter is in first grade and her class is celebrating 100 days of being in school this week. The assignment is to find or create 100 objects and place them on a board. As part of the learning experience the assignment also required her to count the 100 objects. You will see the photos of the Valentine Heart Project below.

Final project! 100 hearts on the board. 
Can you see the number 100?

There is a large number of hearts left over from this project! So I think we are going to make a few more things. Why not, Valentine's Day is just right around the corner! 

This is also a project to do anytime of the year with your little one. It is cheap and easy to do. Not to mention it is great quality time.

By the way, just in case you are wondering. I used some cute digital papers to matte my photos and logo. What do you think? They are from Design House Digital and the pack is called Letter of Love by Sara Schmutz
