A Simple “Heart” Air Balloon Craft

Send a message of love, with extra points for presentation.

Fill these festive balloons with conversation hearts or chocolates for your kids to give to loved ones on Valentine’s Day.

To make: Cut out six three-inch heart shapes from construction paper; fold them in half, then glue or tape them together backside-to-backside with all folds meeting in the middle. Use hot glue to adhere two four-inch lollipop sticks opposite each other to the inside of a sturdy baking cup (available online). Then add a dab of hot glue at the top of each lollipop stick, and adhere to the heart “balloon”.
