Magnetic Heart Tree

Magnetic Heart Trees

Here is another inspired twist on our “Hearts can Grow on Trees” post… Magnetic Heart Trees!  As easy as 1, 2, 3… 3 easy steps that is.  First, attach Adhesive Craft Magnets to the backs of hearts and tree trunk shapes.  Simply peel and stick magnets to the foam shapes.  Second, add Buttons to Hearts (this step is optional).  Lastly, attach the Tree Trunk Magnet to any magnetic surface (refrigerator, filing cabinet, magnetic memo board, etc) and add hearts to the tree branches in any order you would like!  Heart Magnets can be used to teach patterning, spelling, and/or to entertain children as they create their own Magnetic Heart Trees.  Young children may place all the hearts on one branch, however, that is what is so fun about this craft!  No matter how you use these Magnetic Heart Trees they are sure to be worth creating.
