I’ve got a pretty simple Valentine’s Day craft idea for you today. My two-year easily did this with enthusiasm (for about 5 minutes) but it was enough to get it done!
It takes very little prep and very little skill.
Ready to get crafty? (Or at least LOOK like you’re really crafty!?)
- Contact paper (can be purchased at any craft store)
- Tissue paper (3-4 different Valentine colors)
- Painters tape (optional)
If you have younger kids, you might want to secure the contact paper to the table (sticky side up). Older kids will probably be OK without this step.
After laying out your contact paper, sticky side up, tear up tissue paper into different sizes and shapes and randomly place the torn paper on the contact paper. This is great for little ones to help out with!
After most of the sheet is covered with pieces of tissue paper, lay out another piece of contact paper on top. I found it easiest to start at one end and slowly lay the paper down from right to left.
After you’ve done this, cut your large sheet into 4 smaller squares.
Now either you or an older kid cut out a heart shape. I like to use my kindergarten skills and fold the paper in half and cut out half of a heart in order to keep it symmetrical but it’s up to you.
Now tape your hearts on windows, doors or anywhere else in the house to show off!
