#theheartproject party : Valentine crafts and recipes

Valentine ideas

Did you catch #theheartproject Twitter Party on Tuesday? Jamie from hands on as we grow and I hosted a tweet-up to swap fun and creative ideas for celebrating love and friendship with our families. The party was in support of The Heart Project which sees over 70 bloggers come together to produce a beautiful book full of heart projects and raising funds for the American Heart Association. You can find out how to get your copy of the book here.

The party was fast and fun with over 120 people joining in. If you missed it – or those tweets whizzed past too quickly – fear not! Here are some of the fabulous ideas shared for kids crafts and recipes.
