Go Red for Heart Health with fun Valentine’s Day Activities for Kids

 

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!

  1. Oh my goodness – those heart friends and the woven hearts are adorable. It is all wonderful, but those two really stuck out. I absolutely love it. Wish I had time to participate in this. It is so great.

  2. What a great idea to combine heart health with Valentines Day – these crafts are so cute. I think my favorite is the sign language card.

  3. Seeing all these beautiful crafts reminded me how long we’ve been blog friends :) I am sure your kids are hard at work on new creations for this year.
