valentine's craft

Spread the love on Valentine’s Day with a few family-fun kids’ art activities. Don’t worry if you’re not a crafting queen. You can still help your little one get artsy on the holiday. All you need is a handful of paper hearts! Fold construction paper (use holiday colors, such as red and pink), draw half hearts starting at the fold and cut the shapes out. Continue until your child has more than enough hearts to use. Your crafting kiddo can cut out hearts in a variety of sizes and colors.

Now what should you do with the hearts? Take a look at these heart-felt Valentine’s Day art activities for children.

Heart Collage

If you have a cardboard box and glue, this is an easy activity to do. Cut the front off of a cardboard box to use a as a base for the collage. Your child can even cut it into the shape of a heart. Have them glue the construction paper hearts onto it, overlapping the edges and varying the directions of the shapes.

Heart Patterning

Use hearts in different shapes and sizes to create patterns. This might look like red, red, pink, red, red, pink or small, large, small, large.

Heart Garland

Use a hole punch to make a hole in each construction paper heart. Thread ribbon or yarn through the holes, tying a know at each heart. Hang the garland up as a decoration for a holiday party.

Heart People

Use the cut-out hearts as heads to make mini portraits. Your child can glue a heart down onto a piece of paper. They can then draw a body coming from and a face on the heart.
