One of the first things that come to mind when I hear ‘Valentine’s Day’ is conversation hearts. When I was little, I loved getting these, reading the messages, and handing them out to people in my family when a saying reminded me of them. My kids love it when we do activities at home with edible supplies, especially when they can sneak a few in their mouths. I am a big fan of sensory play for kids, and love doing science projects and crafts at home with my little ones. Here are 6 creative uses for conversation hearts that you can do at home! If you want to re-use the candies for multiple projects, do the sensory bin type ones first. I can’t wait to make these frames for some of the fun ‘heart’ artwork we have been making!
