and the tree...is to symbolize it growing.
While doing it ...my kids wanted to have their own tree too...so I made smaller trees and told them to write names of all those they love and to hang it on the tree...my youngest is almost 3 and cant write...so I told him to paste hearts...he was quite happy to do it :-)
Step 2: Tree
Cut a slot on top of the trunk on one tree and and another slot at the bottom of the trunk on the other tree...check picture
slot it and check...cut a bit more if necessary and glue it in place.
Step 3: Love messages
hang it on your tree and let your love grow :-)
for little kids you could punch hearts and tell them to paste and also for a little older kids you could tell them to write the names of all those they love in it and hang it on the tree.
have fun creating love!
