Today was just another cold day in winter wonderland, so I decided to make a valentine's day project for my daughter's Kindergarten class.
Here are the items that we used:
A box of Cheerios
Flags made of a regular printing paper with "Happy Valentine's Day" printed (I made this with Microsoft Word)
It is super easy to make that my 5 year-old daughter could make a better shape of heart than I did!
First we string the cheerios on to the fuzzy stick:
Then we shape the stick into a heart shape:
Print a few flags with Happy Valentine's Day printed and punch hole the ends:
Here is the finished product:
But then a lightbulb went on! This can be a great proposal idea. Guys, you don't need a fuzzy stick if you don't have one around. You can use any bendable wire, string the cheerios on it, tie a red ribbon, write "Will You Marry Me?" on a piece of paper, and voila! There is your proposal! Don't forget the ring, of course!
So, after she said yes and you give her the ring, she can eat the cheerios or she can keep that as a Christmast ornament and as a momento of your proposal. The best part is this does not cost you anything! Just use what you have around the house. I bet this will be one cherished cheerios that will last a lifetime!
