Hand Down the Faith with Mystery Bags - Stained Glue Valentines Day Hearts

From time to time I browse on Pinterest to look at ideas for projects I might try with my grandsons. A few years ago I found a wonderful craft which is perfect for Valentines Day - Stained Glue Valentines Day Hearts - and since it is just a month away, today I'm happy to share it with you as our "Mystery Bag" project for this week.

This craft would be great fun to make with your grandchildren over several days. Stained Glue Valentines Day Hearts make wonderful gifts for them to give to their parents, teachers or to anyone on their Valentines Day list and a fun way for them to share God's love with others as well.

You will need - 

  • Paper lunch bags
  • White string
  • Thread
  • Wax paper
  • Tape
  • White Glue
  • Paper cup
  • Watercolors or food coloring
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Optional: glitter
On the blog, Squishy Cute Designs, they provide all the info, plus step-by-step photo directions, so please follow this link and plan for a special time when your grandchildren are at your home - perhaps for a sleepover - and have fun making these hearts together!

As you make these hearts with your grandchildren, read 1 John 4 and 1 Corinthians 13 then talk with them about what love really is all about. Spend time with them praising and thanking God for His most amazing love and make a few extra hearts which you and your grandchildren could go and give to an elderly neighbor, someone you know who is in a nursing home or to your pastor!
