In my imaginary world it would definitely rain hearts just like it did in my favorite Valentines Day book The Day It Rained Hearts. My daughter (age 3) and I have loved reading it this week and we made this fun craft reminiscent of the story. My idea to make this craft originated from a rain craft I saw at Learning 4 Kids.
- empty cardboard cereal box
- white tissue paper squares
- school glue
- red construction paper
2. Next tape five strands of string (any type of string or yarn will do) to the back of the cloud. They were probably about 12" long each. For the next step you will need to leave the cloud face down like this.
3. While my daughter was busy adding tissue paper to her cloud I was cutting hearts out of red construction paper. I made them varying sizes just as the book described. My daughter took a heart, placed it underneath the string and placed a piece of tape over the string to hold the heart in place.
This ended up being awesome fine motor practice!!
