Simple and easy these are really elegant little yarn ornaments or decorations to make with your preschooler for Valentines Day or any holiday, The "ingredients" are simple enough you are likely to have the items on hand. Mix it up for Easter and make egg shapes, in the summertime make flowers, in the fall pumpkins or leaf shapes! You are only limited by imagination with the shapes although simple is probably best.
There are only a few steps however overall the project is multi-step, involving measuring, cooking and a sensory experience getting messy with the yarn. It was engaging enough to keep my little man hooked on each step!
