Conversation Hearts

As a child, I remember getting Conversation Hearts for Valentine’s Day.  They were a fun part of my childhood Valentine experience, but for Bennett, they aren’t so much fun.  He has food allergies and sensitivities to artificial dyes.  So, I thought I’d make him some wooden ones of his very own to play with.

I bought small unfinished wooden hearts at JoAnn fabrics in packs of 6 for about a dollar.  I sanded them down just a bit to take the rougher spots off.  Then I painted them with acrylic purple, blue, pink, white, and green paints.  The red and white paints were left over from making the READ letters and the other colors I mixed from paint I borrowed from my husband.  It took a couple of coats to get it nice an even. After they dried well, I stamped the little saying on with small letter stamps.

There are 12 in total.  I hope he likes his play conversation hearts!  Now we can have valentines day anytime! :)
