Valentine’s Day Conversation Heart Art for Kids
Candy conversation hearts are a staple of the Valentine’s Day celebration. Along with giving them to your loved ones or filling a bowl with them for a holiday party, you can also create cute crafts with them. That is, your child can create away with candy hearts for Valentine’s Day. Check out these easy-to-make art kids’ holiday art activities that all use conversation hearts!
Candy Heart, Heart
Kids can create a sweet Valentine’s Day greeting card using candy hearts — with only three things. All you need for this project are candy hearts, clear-drying school glue and card stock paper. Have your child draw a heart with glue on the front of the paper. Press the conversation hearts on to the glue and let the card dry. The kids can write a special heart-felt message on the back after the crafting is done.
Start with a piece of reused cardboard, cutting it into a base for the wreath. Draw a large circle, with another in the middle (making it look like a slim donut). Cut the shape out, removing the middle circle part. Paint the cardboard in holiday color, such as red or pink. Glue the hearts onto the painted board circle to complete the craft.
Sweet Picture Frame
Use popsicle sticks to create a rectangle-shaped frame. Glue the ends of sticks together and add a cardboard backing to it. Now it’s time to use the hearts. Dab glue along the popsicle sticks and press the conversation hearts down onto it.
