Heart garland and Valentine worms

We've been making a variety of Valentine garlands here. Some the kids have been able to help with, like this one, and some I've made myself. I should be able to share one with you every day this week!
This garland is cute and very simple. We adapted the idea found here (via The Crafty Crow). My kids had so much fun making the Christmas pipe cleaner ornaments, I was sure they'd enjoy the Valentine hearts. They did pretty well at first, but I guess the heart shape was limiting. They were quickly on to making worms and caterpillars. Looking at them, I have to admit their worm families are more interesting than my hearts. Just not as obviously Valentine.

As a side note, I have to mention their process here. Every animal represented in this house is always labeled either a mommy, daddy, kid or baby. Same with the worms and caterpillars below. They had me cut the pipe cleaners so the mommy and daddy were longest, the kid was next and baby last. Age and height are popular and always interesting topics for them. Then they had me tie a ribbon around the families to keep them together. I think pipe cleaner and bead projects will be repeated here throughout the year.

If my roommates don't help me put the Xmas tree away before Saturday (when I'm having people over for a clothing swap), I'm going to be making these hearts to hang on it for Valentine's Day. "See, it's on purpose that it's still up."

How cute are the caterpillars! Love them.

This begs the question...if they ever decide to add nannas & granddads to the families, what will THEY look like? Hmmmm.
