"We declare the means by which mortal life is created to be divinely appointed. We affirm the sanctity of life and of its importance in God's eternal plan."
We actually talked about this concept with the kids last night while baking and devouring chocolate chip cookies. They were delicious!
But today is a fun, new day, and we needed a fun, new activity.
So, we are happy to bring you "stained glass hearts".
First lay down a sheet of wax paper
and get out some of your favorite colored crayons.
Then start peeling.
Don't stop until you have a nice little pile of shavings.
Then cover with a second piece of wax paper.
Turn your iron on a low setting, and turn off the steam function.
Note: Be sure to place your wax paper on top of newspaper or a rag to protect your ironing surface, because if the wax gets out of the paper it can stain whatever is below it while ironing.
When the peelings melt and spread, you're good to go.
Trace a heart onto your wax paper creation.
Now you can either give your heart a big hug...
...or hang a bunch of them in the nearest window to enjoy!
