Heart Collage

What You Need:

  • Variety of textured materials (construction paper, gift wrap, tissue paper, craft foam, fabric, felt, foil, cardboard, etc.)
  • Scissors
  • Clear drying, non-toxic school glue
  • Card stock or other sturdy paper
  • Markers
  • Glitter (optional)

What You Do:

  1. Ask your child to draw hearts in a variety of sizes onto the textured materials. If they need help, consider making a heart template to stencil or trace. Try making different sizes and thicknesses of hearts.
  2. Help your child cut these out.
  3. Ask them to glue the hearts onto a piece of cardstock (or other thick paper). Encourage your child to overlap the variety of textures and turn the heart shapes at different angles to create an interesting appearance.
  4. Invite them to draw lines and squiggles of glue. Then, sprinkle glitter onto the glue foundation. Shake the excess glitter into a container or trash can.

Encourage your child to add more textured materials as he comes across them. Old Valentine's Day cards make a fun material for this project!
