Hug Armband by Khali from Little. Lovely.

Mike is currently on three months paternity leave. 'H' is especially loving having him home and has developed a serious case of hero worship. He insists on giving Mike a ridiculous amount of hugs throughout the day, so we worked together on a project that made his little hugs more permanent. Here’s how to give your loved one a hug all day long.

What you'll need:

- Paint- Paper (plain and patterned)
- Cellotape
- Double sided tape and scissors

Step one:
Cover your child’s hand in paint.
Step two:
Stamp hand prints on a plain piece of paper and allow to dry.
Step three:
Assist your child in cutting out their hand prints.
Step four:
Cut a long strip of coloured paper the width of your child’s palm.
Step five:
Use cellotape to attach the handprints to the strip of coloured paper.
Step six:
Attach a piece of double sided tape to the underside of one hand.
Step seven:
Give someone a special hug by securing the band around their arm.

Valentine’s Day Garland by Khali from Little. Lovely.

Charlotte is still too small to participate in craft activities but I didn’t want her to miss out on the fun of Valentine’s Day, so I created this special garland for her room. This project would be a great craft activity for older children who are comfortable using scissors.

What you'll need:
- Coloured paper
- Scissors
- Pencil
- Cellotape
- Scalpel

Step one:
Draw nine hearts onto the back of a piece of coloured paper.
Step two:
Cut out the hearts.( You could use a heart paper punch, but I prefer the look of hand cut hearts.)
Step three:
Using a scalpel, make a vertical slit into the side of each heart.
Step four:
Cut strips of coloured paper that are the same width as the slits made on the hearts.
Step five:
Thread one strip of paper through one side of two hearts and secure with tape as shown. Repeat.
Step six:
(Optional) Write a sweet message onto your garland. I took inspiration from John, Paul, Ringo and George and wrote “Love, love me do. You know I love you.”
Step six:
hang your garland from the wall.

..Little. Lovely...


Note: The heart and bird decals shown are from Love Mae.
