Valentine’s Day Parent-Child Heart Art

Valentine's Day

You can’t keep a kiss. Or, can you? Make a memory this Valentine’s Day with a cute craft that you and your child can do together. Play dress-up with some of mommy’s makeup and give your kiddo a mini makeover (lipstick only). Use those lipstick-coated kisses to make a sweet art activity that you can save forever.


  • Red or pink lipstick
  • White or pink card stock paper
  • A marker
  • Scissors


  1. Cut the card stock into hearts. Fold the paper in half, starting the heart at the bottom of the fold. Cut upwards, making half of a heart (the center will be at the fold). Unfold the paper to reveal the full shape.
  2. Kiss the card. Both you and your child can add a colorful Valentine’s Day kiss, using the lipstick.
  3. Write a message. You and your child can each write your own holiday messages to each other around, above or below the kiss.
  4. Add the date. Valentine’s Day is always on February 14th. But, you’ll want to add the year as part of the memento. Use the marker to write the year at the bottom of the card.
  5. Optional: Spray a squirt of hairspray onto the card where the lipstick is to set it and keep it from smearing.
