Share the Love: A Crafty Gal/Pal/Valentine’s FieldTrip
About this FieldTrip
Karen Ward from Curiosity Global is going to take us on a curious and crafty Field Trip to celebrate whatever approach to February 14th you embrace…Galentine’s, Palentine’s or Valentine’s! 😊❤️
In this fun and experiential FieldTrip, Karen will show us how to make four different crafts that will help you show and share the love this week. You will make four perfect little gifts you can give to the people you care about. These Share the Love crafts are simple and satisfying and made with things easy to find in most places, even if you’re living with some restrictions right now.
Here’s what you’ll need for this FieldTrip:Speech Bubble Love Note - Two different colours of felt - inexpensive craft felt is perfect. (You can also use any type of heavier fabric you have around OR craft paper (or even regular printer paper) if you don’t have any fabric.) - A bit of stuffing (like poly-fil, but cotton balls or a tissue or two work too) - Thread (embroidery floss is awesome but regular thread works really well too) - A sewing needle - Scissors - White paper Optional: a small magnet or piece of magnet tape + hot glue gun
Origami Heart Garland - 4-6 pieces of square-shaped paper in whatever colours you like (approx. 6” x 6” or 15 X 15cm) - A long piece of string or yarn
Rings of Love - 2-3 pipe cleaners (or chenille stems) in whatever colours you like
Love Mouse - 2 Hershey’s kisses - 2 googly eyes (or white paper and a fine-tipped black marker) - 1 little pom-pom or small cotton ball - Small piece of red or pink paper (or festive patterned paper) - Short piece of string or yarn - Glue or tape (a hot glue gun is fantastic, if you have one)
