Faux Rose Heart Kids’ Valentine’s Day Card Craft

valentines-day

Your child can get crafty and send a Valentine’s Day greeting that’s completely heart-felt! Instead of buying ready-made cards this year, help your kiddo craft their own rose-covered version. This arts and crafts activity is perfect for preschoolers and elementary school-aged children.

Arts and Crafts Materials You’ll Need

  • Cardboard- Reuse the side of an old box.
  • Scissors
  • Markers
  • Red and pink tissue paper
  • Construction paper
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • A paintbrush

How-To Art-Making Steps

  1. Draw a heart shape onto the cardboard.
  2. Cut the heart out. If the board is thick, you may need to cut out the shape for your young child.
  3. Cover each side of the heart with pink or red construction paper. Cut the paper, using the cardboard as a heart template. Cover the cardboard with glue and press the construction paper on to it. Turn the heart over and repeat for the other side.
  4. After the glue dries, your child can write a Valentine’s Day message on one side with the markers.
  5. Tear the tissue paper into pieces. Each piece will become one rose.
  6. Squeeze the glue onto one side of the heart. Use the paintbrush to spread the glue around the shape.
  7. Crumple or ball each piece of tissue paper and press it to the glue to create faux roses. Your child should continue this process until they cover the whole heart.
  8. Let the glue dry.
