  • Heavyweight Cardboard 
  • Balloons 
  • Permanent Markers 
  • Craft Knife 
  • Balloon pump 



  • Cut a cardboard heart for each child.  
  • Use a craft knife to score an “X” on the heart shape. 

NOTE:  When using a die cut machine with heavy cardboard it is helpful to turn the tie at a slight angle to rock the roller back and forth while rolling the die through the machine. 


  • Blow up and tie a balloon.   
  • NOTE:  Most kids can’t blow up a balloon with their mouths, but they can learn to use a balloon pump.  Teachers will still probably have to tie the knot. 
  • Insert the knot of the balloon through the “x” cut in the heart. 
  • Use permanent markers to personalize the balloon and shoes.
