After we made our Easy Paper Valentine Necklaces, we had a lot of these gorgeous paper straws left over and just HAD to do something with them!
All you need for this project is some pink or red construction paper, a pencil, paper straws in Valentine colors (ours were from a craft store, but they are also available on Amazon), and some glue.
Draw a simple heart shape on your construction paper. Cut the straws into a variety of lengths. While it's nice to have a good selection of lengths to start with, I recommend leaving some uncut, so that you can cut them to the right length as needed.
Choose straws that will fill the space, and let your children glue away! Squeezing the glue will give those little hand muscles a great workout!
Keep adding straws until the heart shape is all filled in.
