Give a “hearty” thank you to your children’s ministry volunteers this Valentine’s Day by constructing this creative mobile.
- Purple, red, and pink crayons;
- wax paper;
- an iron;
- hole punch;
- foam board;
- two 3-foot wooden dowels;
- fishing line; and
Thank You Mobile for Volunteers
Melt purple, red, and pink crayon shavings between two sheets of wax paper with a low-heat iron. Then cut out 5-inch hearts from the cooled shavings. You’ll need about 30 hearts. Punch a hole in the top of each heart.
On separate, rectangular pieces of foam board, write the words “Thank you for sharing your heart with the children of (church name).”
Use two 3-foot wooden dowels to form an X. Secure the dowels with clear packing tape. Then use fishing line to hang the foam boards and hearts along the crossed dowels. Hang the finished mobile above a counter or table that has a box of Valentine candy on it.
