Description of Program:

I did this program as a quick craft and a storytime last Valentine's day.

I had a lot of half sheets of construction paper that I wanted to use up, as well as odds and ends of craft supplies/stickers.


  1. Cut strips of colorful paper, about an inch or two.
  2. Have children write the name of anything they love on strips of paper. Ex: parents, siblings, pets, stuffed animals, tv characters, BOOKS!
  3. Fold strip of paper in half, looping the free ends into heart shape, stapling at inside point of heart. Making a paper chain heart shaped.
  4. Repeat until child uses all strips, or is long enough to fit around their head/neck comfortably.


Free! Could be done with craft supplies you already own, or can purchase colorful construction paper and other decorating supplies.


I held the event like a usual story time, by reading two Valentine’s day themed books, then brought the children over to the craft tables to create their full hearts necklace.

It was a great program, and would do it again!
