Be a Hero for your kids! Make Love Heart Flowers

Hello Artisans

These flowers make a great little Valentine’s gift. Stick them on a card or place them inside one. They can be a little tricky to make but the end result is worth the extra effort. This art activity is suited to kids aged 4 to 7 years.  Be an artful hero for those you love today!
