woven valentines hearts

My friend Kari called me one day and asked me for a quick Valentine's project to do with her fourth graders. Of course I delivered. I sent her the following series of text messages (technology!!!) She never told me if she did the project or not, or how it turned out...

I've done this project numerous times with different shapes. Butterflies, as one example, look really good (you need something that is symmetrical). You can hit all kinds of benchmarks and standards with paper weaving, color theory, symmetry, scissor skill, following directions, shape, line, texture, etc with this project!

Happy Creating!


  1. Try a woven heart like this for Valentine's Day.
