Creative Fun – Hearts Bunting
Sometimes it’s the simple things that are best for play dates – especially with a mix of ages. Recently, we set up a simple Creation Station for a Valentines playdate, and the children got creative with the materials provided. We then turned their creations into a cute Hearts Bunting decoration.

Valentines Playdate Creative fun
For our simple Creation Station for the 3 children at the playdate, I cut up a selection of hearts for them to decorate.
Using Dot Markers instead of normal paint, kept mess to a minimum, and with children of various ages at the creation station, they were able to use their own skills, decorating the hearts in the way that they wanted. Because we had very young children (under 2’s) we avoided putting out the scissors but with an older play date that would be great.
Once the children had decorated the hearts (and it really doesn’t matter if they do both sides – yes J is one of those children) We then hole-punched the corners and used some sparkly ribbon (left over from Christmas wrapping) to string the hearts together into a bunting that we could decorate our room with.
