Paper Heart Bunting


We loved this paper heart bunting so much we have refreshed it just for you! Peakles loves Valentine’s Day and now that we are through our ‘snowflake’ crafting phase for this year, she naturally began to want more heart crafts to do! We are concentrating on her fine motor skills to help with her pencil grip and her manual dexterity so a cutting with scissors activity seemed like a creative way for her to practise these skills!

Materials Needed

White card or paper  Red card or paper  Children’s Scissors  Glue stick

Pencil or Pen  String, thread or wool  Mini pegs (optional)

How We Made Paper Heart Bunting

First, we folded and cut our red and white A4 paper into four equal parts (A6 size).  Peakles then folded each of the red rectangles in half again.  I drew a half heart shape using the fold of the paper as the middle of the heart.  Peakles then carefully (with some guidance on scissor grips & safety from me) cut out the heart shapes.

She then glued the red hearts on the white paper.  She took the red paper that had a heart shaped hole and stuck this onto a white piece of paper.  Peakles then arranged an alternative patter of ‘red heart, white heart’ and attached then to a piece of red string with some mini pegs.  We then hung our paper heart bunting up to decorate our living room.

I must admit we both really enjoyed this activity and I can see us making more paper bunting in the future!
