Animals and math: all in one Valentine's Day-themed art project? This imaginative shape activity will introduce your little learner to the world of shape and color, while building basic math skills. Puzzle together hearts in all colors and sizes to create cats, dogs, or even elephants through the art of collage!
Start off by helping your child research his favorite animal. Take a trip to the local library or search the web for kid-friendly information on our furry (or feathered) friends. Point out photos or illustrations and ask your child to name facial features and animal body parts. He'll love turning pointy cat ears or fluffy bunny tails in Valentine’s Day hearts!
