Kids Giving Project

Thanks for supporting our Kids Giving Project this year! Now let us take you through how to make your heart decoration:

What you need:

  • Heart decoration kit (available from any one of our Mission Shops, find your local Mission Shop here.)
  • Needle or glue
  • Adult to assist


Step 1: Lay all your equipment out in front of you:

Step 2: Place the 2 felt hearts together and ask an adult to help you sew or glue them together - but not completely just yet!


Step 3: When you get half way, add in the stuffing - picture below shows how we placed our cotton wool balls:

Step 4: Finish sewing or gluing up your heart - you can add some extra colour and decorations if you like:

Step 5: Hang on your Christmas tree and admire your work!

We'd love to see your work! Encourage your parents to share your creation on Instagram with us using #openyourheart

Once you've finished making your decoration, hang it on your Christmas tree to remind you, your family and your friends that you've helped make Christmas special for a child in need.
