- Cut hearts out of construction paper and then hole punch the edges. Little fingers can then lace the hearts with yarn/ribbon/string, and you can join them together later.
- Instead of joining the hearts together to make garland, make ornaments to decorate a "Valentine Tree". Just leave the ends of the string at the top of the heart and knot them to make a loop.
- Make the garland to give someone who is sick and could use some cheer in their hospital room or nursing home room.
- With a colorful marker, have your child write on each heart the name of someone they love.
