Valentine’s Day Art

Purchase Valentine cupcake liners, and have the children glue several to a piece of construction paper, then have them glue a pink or red pom pom into the middle. Have them then draw stems and leaves from each one to the bottom of the paper. Add the saying “Love is in Bloom”

Have the Children sponge paint hearts on a piece of construction paper, and when they are dry have them take a green marker or crayon and draw stems and leaves from the hearts. On the top of the paper, add the saying “My Love for you just grows and grows”


Instead of having the child sit still while you trace their profile, I found this works much easier. Take a picture of the child’s profile with a digital camera. Print out the picture the size you like and paper clip it to black construction paper. You can easily cut around the profile and there you have it. We made Valentine’s cards. We cut out the silhouettes and placed them on an 8 inch heart doily and glued it to a large piece of red construction paper. Inside the card I wrote “I am in the DARK without you.” Happy Valentine’s Day!!

I had the children decorate the inside of the card with stickers, stamps….

What a keep sake.

Cut out a heart from butcher paper and hang up. On one half write Hugs and on the other half write Kisses. Ask the shildren what they would rather receive from you; a hug or a kiss. Tally their responses in the appropriate section. When you’re all done have them line up for their Hug or Kiss. They now learn that you will be giving them a Hershey’s Hug or a Hershey’s Kiss, not a real one!

Heart Rainbow-Cut a medium sized heart out of white construction paper. Fold heart in half. Open heart. Let children choose 3 different colors to paint one side of the heart. Close heart again and let child rub up and down. This will mix the colors making a heart rainbow! This can also be done with butterflies.
