Use a hole punch to make a hole in each construction paper heart. Thread ribbon or yarn through the holes, tying a know at each heart. Hang the garland up as a decoration for a holiday party.
Use the cut-out hearts as heads to make mini portraits. Your child can glue a heart down onto a piece of paper. They can then draw a body coming from and a face on the heart.
