We’re just getting started with Valentine’s projects this year, but here are two that Love Bug did last year.
1. A Love Bug! I thought this was so cute, and of course since I call him Love Bug we had to do it.
It was pretty simple. I just cut two heart-shaped wings out of construction paper, we stapled them to a toilet paper roll that he painted his then-favorite color, and we added some glitter and paint and pipe cleaner antenna. The black marks on the toilet paper roll are his eyes.
2. Marbled Hearts, which I found at Teaching 2 and 3 Year Olds (my favorite source for fun projects).
We put water on a cookie sheet and then poured on a mixture of oil and red food coloring. We mixed it around a little bit. It was really messy, and food coloring does not clean up like our usual washable finger paints!
I cut them into heart shapes after it was dried, and we gave one to each of his grandmothers.
