Valentine hack: Heart-shaped pasta bracelets


Marita came up with a fun and simple project any toddler would love:

My girls and I are making bracelets using some heart-shaped pasta we found at ALDI. Was $2 for a big bag of heart shaped pasta and I've used leftover Christmas ribbon to thread it together. Cheap, easy and fun.

I am SOOOOO gonna look for that pasta tomorrow when I go shopping at our ALDI! Thanks!

Oh! I remember my mom and I used to use heart shaped pasta and we would make little anklets and tie them to a ribbon as a headband!

this is a fabulous idea! brilliant!
completely safe and non-toxic!
(with so much awful toys out there this is wonderful!) going to use this idea for my daughters 5th birthday/princess party! thank you, thank you!
