These bright, colorful necklaces are the perfect easy kids' project for Valentine's Day! They're simple enough for toddlers, fun enough for preschoolers, and cool enough for big kids. These necklaces were inspired by this awesome post from Fireflies and Mud Pies. Melissa made a version for Halloween, and I've had the idea stuck in my head ever since! I thought they'd be so pretty in Valentine's Day colors!
All you need for this project is some necklace cord or string, and some paper straws in Valentine's Day colors. Mine were from a local craft store, but you can also purchase them through Amazon.
Cut them into little bits. At first I cut them at an angle, because I thought they'd look super cool. And they DID look super cool, but they were also very poky, and hurt to wear as a necklace. On to plan B. Cut them straight!
Then just let your kids thread them on to a necklace cord or string. Make one or make a dozen!
And.....make one for your dolly.
