For any big day where they could use some extra love
One fun and easy (cheap too!) I love to do to show a little extra love is to Heart Attack my son’s door. I’ve done it for Valentine’s Day and Birthday’s but you can do it for any occasion when you want to share a little extra love. Maybe before a big test at school that they’ve been worried about or as congratulations for a big achievement?
How to Heart Attack a Door
Cut out paper hearts from paper and tape to the door. Really its that simple. Don’t over think it. It’s ok if your hearts aren’t perfect. Find some paper and start cutting. I find it easiest to fold paper in half and then cut the half heart shape so it’s even on both sides (make sure to check the side of the fold before cutting so you don’t end up with two half hearts. Red or pinks work great but white works too. Add color to white paper by using colorful markers.
Take the Heart Attack to the next level
Want to do add some extra? Here are a few ideas:
- Write messages on the hearts
- Use themed scrapbook paper. Because my son loves baseball so I use a few pieces of baseball-themed scrapbook paper for some of the hearts.
- Add photos to the hearts or print out your photos and cut them into hearts.
