Valentine pencil Toppers

Just like their edible cousins, these foam conversation hearts will let your child get right to the point of her Valentine's messages.


WHAT YOU NEED
Scissors
Craft foam
Permanent markers
Pipe cleaner
Pencil
Time needed: Under 1 Hour

Step 1:
Cut a 1- to 2-inch heart from craft foam. With a permanent marker, print a short message on the front and the name of the giver on back.
Step 2:
Now poke an inch of the pipe cleaner through the bottom of the heart, bend it down, and twist it back around the remaining length of pipe cleaner.
Step 3:
Coil the pipe cleaner tightly around the pencil. Then gently pull up on the heart so that part of the coil bobs freely above the pencil, with several loops anchored around the eraser end.
