Wednesday is Valentine’s Day which means a lot of us will be exchanging Valentine’s Day cards and messages. We came up with a fun way to show our friends that we love them using bark we found on the ground!
We decided to carve a heart into a piece of fresh bark and give this as our Valentine’s Day greeting. It’s kind of like carving a name or heart into a tree, without really messing up the tree. (I think carving your name into a tree is like spraying a wall with spray paint. You shouldn’t do it!)
We used the end of a screwdriver to carve a small heart into a small piece of bark.
The trick is, the bark needs to have fallen of the tree recently so you can actually mark into easily. I couldn’t carve anything into older, dried up pieces.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
