Getting crafty with kids doesn’t have to break the bank, and Dollar Tree is the perfect place to find affordable supplies for creative projects. Today, we’re diving into a delightful and simple kids’ craft – the Heart Wand! With wooden hearts, a wooden dowel, pink paint, gem stickers, and ribbon, your little ones can unleash their imagination and create a magical accessory that’s perfect for playtime or as a charming gift for friends.

Materials Needed:

  • Wooden hearts from Dollar Tree
  • Wooden dowel
  • Pink paint
  • Gem stickers
  • Ribbon in various colors
  • Glue
  • Paintbrushes
  • Newspaper or a craft mat (to protect your workspace)

Step 1: Paint the Hearts
Pick your favorite shade of pink paint and start coating the wooden hearts. Allow them to dry completely before moving on to the next step. For an extra touch, mix in a bit of glitter to add shimmer.

Step 2: Decorate with Gem Stickers
Once the paint is dry, let the kids express their creativity by adorning the hearts with gem stickers. Whether they prefer a symmetrical pattern or a random arrangement, this step allows them to add their unique flair to each heart.

Step 3: Assemble the Wand
Take the wooden dowel and apply a generous amount of glue to one end. Carefully attach a decorated wooden heart to the glued end, ensuring it’s securely in place. Hold it for a minute or two to let the glue set. Cut various lengths of ribbon in different colors and tie them to the end of the dowel. 

Playtime Magic
Once the wand is dry, it’s ready for playtime magic! Encourage your kids to let their imagination soar as they use their Heart Wand to cast spells, create enchanting dances, or even embark on a fairy-tale adventure.
