A couple of days ago my bugs made some LOVEly heart paintings. M used a heart shaped cookie cutter to stamp his paint onto black scrapbook paper, while B finger painted over top of a heart cutout I had taped to the centre of his black paper.
- red and white non-toxic tempera
- black scrapbook paper
- a heart shaped cookie cutter (for M)
- a couple of paper plates to mix the paint on
- a heart cutout shape (for B)
After placing the materials in front of the boys, I demonstrated to each of them what they were supposed to do, and they got right to it!
I think they both turned out beautiful but, most importantly, the boys had a fun time making them. When B was finished finger painting over the heart cutout, I peeled the cutout off of the black paper to reveal the heart print beneath.
Have a happy Valentine’s Day!
