Beaded Hearts <3 <3 <3

You Will Need:

  • Pipe cleaners
  • Beads

The Activity:

Here is a nice simple beading activity for Valentines.

Begin by asking children to bead different colored beads unto a pipe cleaner. For younger children, I allow them to bead clors as they wish however for older children I make patterns that they need to copy.

Once children string beads on the entire pipe cleaner , twist both ends together.


Then ask children to add one more bead at the tip and wrap the ends of the pipe cleaner around the last bead.


This will create a raindrop shape. Shape the final product into a heart.


Create all sorts of beautiful hearts and hang them around your home!
