Valentine’s day crafts for preschoolers

I traced my sons hand on a brown piece of construction paper, leaving room to draw the rest of the tree trunk coming off of it. I then cut it out. Voila, a tree trunk!

Now it’s time to get painting!

Valentines crafts for kids

First, dip a finger into the paint and start fingerpainting onto the pink (or white) construction paper. Use multiple colors to paint all over the paper.

Easy valentine crafts

Continue until the paper is mostly covered with color, or until satisfied with the fingerpainting.  Let dry completely.

Valentine craft ideas

After the paint is dry, it’s time to cut out hearts. To do this, cut the painted paper into strips, and then fold each strip to cut out small hearts.

Valentines day activities for kids

Set the hearts aside and glue the tree trunk onto a blue piece of construction paper.

Make glue dots all around the hand portion of the tree and begin gluing down the hearts. Don’t worry about gluing them down completely. It looks 3D if you let the sides pop up and overlap a bit with neighboring hearts.
