You will need;

  • White card stock
  • Pencil
  • Red construction paper
  • Craft string
  • Tape
  • Black marker

write your words

Write “Create in me a clean heart Psalms 51:10” on the card stock. Go over the heart and words with a black marker.

add string to the red heart

Fold the card stock just enough to make a slit just below the point of the heart. Try not to crease the card stock.

The slit needs to be long enough for the red heart to go through.

Make a hole near the point of the red heart. Add about 12 inches of string. Tape over the hole.

add bubbles

Draw around some small buttons to make bubbles around the heart. Draw over the circles with a blue marker.

Place the string through the slit. When you pull the string the red heart will disappear showing a clean white heart.

Here is a PDF of the disappearing heart craft. Besides the page with the bubbles, there is a second page with a red heart. All you need to do is print on card stock. Cut the slit below the heart and cut the heart out on the second page. Be sure to add your string like in the directions above.
