How Do I Love Thee Heart Banner

As a family with four children under the age of 7 there is a lot of noise and commotion at our house all day long. But with all the screaming (who me?) and fighting there is also tons and tons of love in our house. It is always good to take a break from the commotion and have each child focus on what they love about someone else, plus it makes kids feel good to hear the positive things their siblings love about them.

To display our love all month long we created a How Do I Love Thee Heart Banner. My daughter and I cut out assorted sizes of paper hearts and attached them to yarn with tape. Then we all talked about different things we love about each family member and wrote them on the hearts. We have a few hearts left open so we can continue to write down more ways we love each other as the month continues.
