Happy Valentine’s Day! Looking for an easy last minute craft project to do with your kids for Valentine’s Day? Try out our wooden bead and heart garland. All your need are wooden beads by Lena, paper and glue! An afternoon of guaranteed fun to celebrate Valentine’s Day. I am not sure why but in Italy Valentine’s Day is considered to be for adults. In the States, elementary school kids bring little paper Valentine’s with sweets for all their friends to celebrate the day!

Let’s get started on our wooden bead and heart garland.
In order to make the project easier, I organised our material in advance. I prepared strips of paper that are 2,5cm wide so that my mini crafters could jump right into putting the wooden bead and heart garland together! The fun part!
Make sure that you watch the short video that I made – it shows how easy it is to build the 3D hearts for the garland.
The string provided in the bead kit is perfect as the tip is reinforced making it super easy for small hands to add beads!
We stopped after two hearts but depending on how long you want your beaded heart garland to be you can just keep repeating the steps. You are going to love the colors of the beads! Perfect for any crafting project!
