This sweet tradition comes from my years spent in the Waldorf Kindergarten realm. There were many times a little one came to me with a bump, bruise, or some invisible cut... What was one to do? We go to the freezer and take out one of these caring hearts! A lovingly made felt heart, stuffed with lamb's wool and kept in the freezer. A lovingly made felt heart, stuffed with lamb's wool and kept in the freezer, cools to the perfect temperature for soothing tender skin.
Kitchen dyes are perfect for impromptu art projects! Dyeing wool felt with Turmeric is quick and easy because the felt does not need any treatment before dyeing, and it takes color very quickly.
