The "Pass it On" heart for the 2022 Parade of Hearts in Kansas City features over 300 handprints from my husband's 8th & 9th grade English classes. It was a truly collaborative project--I came up with the idea but couldn't have achieved it without him. Even the school custodians had to help--they had to take apart a door so we could get the giant heart in and out of the school!
The biggest thanks goes to my husband, who I volun-told to do this with his students, who helped me haul the heart back and forth multiple times, and who is my greatest hype man! ❤️
Here's the whole heart process completed over the winter of 2021-2022.
