Any big day where your kids could use some extra love
One fun and easy (cheap too!) thing 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 Birthdays 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 it’s that simple. Don’t overthink it. It’s ok if your hearts aren’t perfect. Find some paper and start cutting.
I find it easiest to fold the 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 plain white paper by using colorful markers.
If you have a Cricut machine, you can use that to cut your hearts from cardstock. Choose a few different sizes and set it to cut.
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.
Are you doing this for your kids this year? We’d love to hear all about it. Post a photo to social and tag @sweetshoppemom. We might even share it.
