Kids Co-op - Valentine craft

Its time for Kids Co-op, please link up your favourite kids posts and check out what others have been up to this week, plenty to inspire you. This week I'm linking the following:
(Goblin is 39 months)

Goblin and I made some Valentine hearts for Nanny and Granny. These are super easy to make and look great. 
I cut two hearts out of cardboard. Around the edge I cut little Vs. Then I sprayed them gold. 
I cut some Christmas parcel ribbon into foot long lengths and taped one to the back of a heart. Goblin then wound the ribbon around the heart until it ran out and I taped the end down. The idea was to do this a few times but unfortunately Goblin decided it was more fun to see how much ribbon he could stuff into his mouth. So once I'd retrieved it and wiped the dribble off I finished them.

And now to the linky

I'm sharing this with
