How to create a simple piece of Valentine’s Day art

What you need:

  • sample (optional)
  • drag
  • art supplies (we love watercolor)
  • black marker (optional)
  • glue
  • a sheet of construction paper (black is great, other colors are fine)

Step-by-step instructions

Print out the form.

You can use regular printer paper, although we find that heavier printer paper works better.

Colors in the sample.

Watercolor would work really great for this project; however, they are not the only art supplies your child can use. Crayons, pencils, markers, fingerprints… Let your child’s imagination do its work.

There’s no need to stick to just one medium. Have your child layer different art supplies (such as using white pencils and watercolors). They can color each heart using a different medium.

You can have your child add patterns and/or textures to the heart.

Drawing different textures for the heart with a black marker over watercolor is quite neat.

Once the kids are happy with the shape of their hearts, ask them to cut the hearts out.

Prepare cardboard. We chose black because it really brings out the heart.

Take the first heart (regardless of which one it is) and apply glue to the back.

Glue the heart onto the paper, wherever you want.

Repeat with all the other hearts, gluing them side by side, on top of each other, on top of each other. Go with the flow and position them however you see fit.

All has been done! Your V-day artwork is complete.

It would make a beautiful classroom decoration, it would radiate love from the fridge, or it could even turn into a beautiful Valentine’s Day card!
