It’s almost Valentine’s Day! Last week, we showed you two easier Valentine’s crafts to show you love others. Now, let’s make a craft that’s a bit more complicated for those children who can follow directions and are able to sew (even just a little bit). Our simple and cozy heart hand warmers will be fun to make and neat to give away. They work on so many skills such as:  fine motor, life skills (sewing), bilateral integration, cutting, sensory, and the social skills of giving to others and building friendships while completing a task.
 
 
1) Using a simple shape as a pattern, cut two pieces out of fabric. We chose hearts.


2) Place the right sides of fabric together and sew around the shape leaving 1/4″ edge.  Leave a 1.5″ un-sewn opening.

 


3) Turn right side out.



4) Using a funnel, fill your hand warmers with uncooked rice.

 




 
Have you ordered your brain break and sensory activity cards? Over 200 short activities for movement and mindfulness designed for smaller areas and to take only 5-10 minutes out of your busy schedule. 



5) Pin the opening so it looks good and stays closed. Using a needle and thread, sew the opening shut.





6) Print the FREE printable on white cardstock and cut apart the cards.


7) Place one card and a hand warmer in a clear bag or use the card as a tag and tie it around the hand warmer.


Let us know if you’ve made this fun craft and post pictures of your hand warmers in the comments
