Upcycled Crafts: Valentine’s Storytime Craft

February 1, 2014 at 4:03 am Leave a comment

Hey there, everyone! In addition to doing the craft blog here at Recycled Reads, I also do our monthly storytime. February’s storytime theme, as one would guess, is Valentine’s Day. For the craft, I wanted to have something easy, but meaningful for both children and parents, as well as a craft unique to Recycled Reads. As you know, we’re all about environmental consciousness here, so I decided expressing love in terms of the earth was right on target.

I love you to the ends of the Earth!

All you need is an old or damaged map, scissors, markers, and a way to trace your hands. We used tape to attach the hand cutouts to the joining strip of paper. Feel free to put your own message on the strip of paper between the hands, or use our “I love you to the ends of the Earth!” inscription. Happy Valentine’s Day, and remember to show the Earth some love this V Day!
