Kid Made Heart Votives
Supplies you will need:
I gave my kids some tissue hearts and some Mod Podge in a cup and showed them how they could attach the hearts to the glass. They loved working with Mod Podge.
The kids had some trouble making their hearts smooth on the glass, so there are some bumps, but that just adds to the kid made charm.
Here is how it will look when the kids are done with their part. You will want to paint over the hearts with a thin layer of Mod Podge when the tissue paper hearts have dried.
This is how it will look while drying. My kids were curious to see if the Mod Podge would indeed turn clear, as I promised.
Here are the finished votive holders. Now what grandma wouldn’t love to receive these?
Drop a votive candle in there and enjoy!
These Kid Made Heart Votives make really great teacher gifts too. You can even put a gift card in the empty votive if you wanted to add a little more to it.
If you are looking more fun ways to engage your kids, I highly recommend KiwiCo. As a former teacher, I was really impressed with the quality of materials found in KiwiCo. Some moms have told me that they want to do activities like I do on Mess For Less with their kids, but they just don’t have to the time to go buy all the supplies and prepare them for the activity. KiwiCo is the perfect solution.
Every month your KiwiCo will focus on a particular theme like Colors, Dinosaurs or Gardening. KiwiCo offer a variety of projects ranging from crafts, imaginative play, science experiments and more.
