heart chain

One of my jobs at work as an Art Educator is to develop art/craft activities for the children. 
We have various areas throughout the museum with art and craft activities that change on a daily/weekly basis. Needless to say, it gets really difficult to come up with activities that haven't been done before. Thanks to Pinterest, I have found a few new things. 

I figured I would start to share some of them with you. 

This weeks activity for the older kiddos is a heart chain. They seem to really love it. I have seen them do all sorts of stuff with them, like turned them into wreaths and hats.

Here are my own instructions to creating a heart chain. 
Kids seem to follow pictures better than words.
