Our now-fancy version of Thing on a String is Hearts on a Ribbon.
The original craft idea called for a Curtain of Hearts, and we set all the students to making at least one Valentine heart.
But something got lost in translation. Instead of a curtain, we now have various hearts, cards, and stars (stars? well, “Hearts…ewwwww…!” some of the boys grumbled) floating from randomly placed ribbons that are hanging all over the ceiling in our lounge. We put three to five items on each ribbon.
It looks fantastic.
And even if you only have a few students, you can never cut out and hang up too many hearts, can you? Nope nope nope, you really can’t.
