Today I’m joining up with some other kid bloggers in support of the American Heart Association and it’s Go Red for Women awareness campaign. Did you know that heart disease is the single largest health threat for women? To keep this on your mind, here are some of our favorite heart activities which, happily, double as wonderful Valentine’s Day activities for kids! Clicking on the picture will take you to the post where I wrote about each craft!

Let your child sew their own red heart.
