Valentine’s Day Art

Take a picture of each child blowing a kiss (only take a picture of their mouth) and then display them in the class room. Have the parents try to figure out who’s blowing the kisses at them!

I cut red posterboard in a 2 inch

circle. Cut another circle slightly smaller out of white paper (it looks nice if you cut using special scissors that make scalloped edges). Glue white paper to red posterboard so that the red shows around the edge.

Press each childs thumb in red ink

(stamp pad) and make a heart in the center of the white paper by crossing two thumbprints. Write a message around the edge. (ie. Be my valentine, love Hannah, etc.

Laminate and put a magnet on back.

(the thin flat ones work best)

Parents LOVE these!

You will need poster board, or card board cut into an 8×10. Foil (the long rolls (or wide) then pull a piece off and scrunch up. Now get a picture you like from a coloring book and get saran wrap and put it over the top. Use Dry Erase or Sharpies and outline the image in black. Now have the kids color in with the Sharpies or Dry Erase (or any permanent marker). Put the foil on the 8×10 and wrap around to the back. Now put your Saran wrap on top. The kids just love how it looks and turns out really wonderful – they kept asking me before they knew how to make how I drew it! The more colors you use the better it turns out. Conversational hearts would work great – but the saying will be backwards when you turn your Saran wrap onto the foil.

Print on red or pink paper the saying “Have you hugged & kissed your child today” (make it the size of a credit card or business card) then put stickers or draw a hershy hug & kiss on it and then contact , put a piece magnet on back of it for parents to put on fridge and also send home some hugs & kisses with the magnet.

Simple and Cute art…Take a red piece of construction paper and cut out a heart. Take a brown piece of paper and cut out a small set of eyes and a small nose. Take a pink piece of construction paper and cut out two medium size circles, and then get out purple pipe cleaners. This is were the kids come in, have each child take a heart, two eyes, a nose and a pipe cleaner and two circles, after they have taken each item then give them a stick of glue to make a mouse! Place the two circles like ears a little bit before the point of the heart they should look like ears, then the eyes in between the ears, then the nose at the point of the heart, and then the pipe cleaner, you should bend it to any shape and glue to the back of the heart…and there you have it a cute little valentine mouse! I hope you can figure it out…its very cute!!!! Enjoy…. and you may have to move things are to figure it out.
