Stuffed Heart!

The theme this week is Valentines Day!
Project:  Stuffed Heart!  Addie loved making the project today - she is sooooo excited for Valentine's Day.  I don't think she even knows what Valentine's Day is!!  She loves to paint, so this project was perfect for her.  After her heart was dry, she ran it upstairs and put it next to her picture on our end table.  I think she picked a perfect spot for it! 
Directions:Trace a heart onto a brown paper bag, so you cut through both sides of the bag (you want to have 2 identical shaped hearts).  Staple the edges of the heart together.  Leave an opening somewhere in the heart.  Stuff the heart with cotton balls or newspaper.  Staple the opening shut.  Paint the heart red!  Materials Needed:  paper bag, scissors, stapler, cotton balls or newspaper, red paint, paint brush
