These yarn wrapped hearts are adorably simple to make and the perfect Valentine activity for kids ages 6 to 10. They are really cute hung from flowering branches in the center of a table, or presented to friends as gifts. You could replace the center arrow with a cute pencil pencil. Either way, your kids are going to love making these yarn wrapped hearts.
