Heart Craft Using Magic Nuudles

This heart craft is made using Magic Nuudles. Magic Nuudles are one of my favorite preschool craft supplies to keep on hand.

My children always enjoy working with them and so do I. I usually purchase multiple packs of them using coupons at Joann Fabric and Crafts. They can also be purchased on Amazon.

The Magic Nuudles only come in packs of multiple colors (bummer) and not packs of one individual color. With that in mind, it could get a bit pricey to buy enough packs for a large group of children to create pink or red hearts. You will want to have children make multi-colored hearts if you are doing this with a group of students.

Children should be careful not to saturate Magic Nuddles in water. Very little water is needed to make the Magic Nuudle tacky enough to stick to the paper. Children will exercise fine motor skills as they use their fingers to contour the Magic Nuudles to the shape of the heart.
