NOTES: You can create this on your own or make a fun collaborative project! Heres how . . . STEP 1. Everyone creates their own heart canvas. STEP 2. Everyone creates a variety of cut out hands. STEP 3. Hands are swapped (a great way to do this is place hands in an envelope and drop them off at one another's mail boxes. These can also be mailed so long distance friends and family can also participate!
