valentines-hearts

Your creative kiddo can craft a heart-filled artwork to celebrate Valentine’s Day! This multi-media collage project is perfect for kids in preschool and up. If you’re looking for a fun-filled activity to display at your family’s holiday party or give to friends as a homemade gift, read on for the how-to steps.

Arts and Crafts Materials You’ll Need

  • Cardboard- Reuse an old cereal or cracker box instead of buying new board.
  • Scissors
  • Markers
  • Tissue paper
  • Tempera paint
  • A paintbrush
  • Clear-drying school glue

How-To Art-Making Steps

  1. Cut the side or front from an old cardboard box. The cardboard should have at least one plain side–without writing, print, or pictures.
  2. Draw a large-sized heart onto the cardboard.
  3. Cut the heart out.
  4. Paint the heart. Your child can cover the heart with one Valentine’s Day themed colors, create a pattern or try a paint splatter technique. They can also combine all three, painting the heart with a solid hue first–and then adding stripes/polka dots/designs, and an abstract artist-like splatter on top.
  5. Let the heart art dry completely.
  6. Cut red, pink, purple and white tissue paper into pieces. Your child can make any shape they want or try to cut out tiny hearts.
  7. Glue the tissue paper onto the heart, creating a collage. Your child doesn’t need to cover all of the paint. Instead, let some show through the tissue collage.

Optional: Add a special sparkle to the project and sprinkle glitter onto the glue.
