Connection Hearts Activity


Connection Hearts

From the Activity Guide: Inside the Story – The Someone New


When we’re feeling nervous or lonely it’s easy to forget how many wonderful people we have in our life.  This craft will help you think about all of the people that mean the most to you and to remember that even during the times we’re far away from the people we love, they’re always with us in our hearts and minds.

  1. Find a piece of paper, it can be any size or color you’d like. In the center of the paper, draw a heart, and inside that heart, write the names of the people you live with (don’t forget to include yourself!)
  2. Now draw smaller hearts surrounding the big heart, and in the middle of those hearts, write the names of family members and friends who mean the most to you.
  3. Once you’ve drawn and filled in all of the hearts with names, draw connection lines between all of the hearts.

Now that all of the hearts are connected to your big heart in the center, take a look at your picture. See how every heart is connected in some way, even the ones that feel really far from the center?  That’s how it always is—even when we have to be far from one another, we’re always connected.
