Love You To Pieces Craft: Perfect for Valentine's Day!


Still searching for last-minute Valentine's Day crafts, activities & treats? We've got a super easy craft/activity that you can do with supplies that you probably have lying around the house. Plus, this one is toddler-friendly, and older kids can enjoy this one, too. It's a great rainy day activity, and doesn't have to be just for Valentine's Day- it's the perfect craft to go along with Bible stories that focus on love, or for anytime you want to help your kiddos share their love with others! Let's get crafting!

You will need:

A Blank Sheet of Paper
2-3 Sheets of Colored Construction Paper
Markers
Glue


Step 1: Draw a large heart on a piece of paper, and write the words 'I love you to pieces' around the heart, however you desire.

You can get totally fancy with your heart if you want to, and older kids can draw their own! Mine was super quick and quirky. You really just need the heart shape, so even if you're like me, and you're not artistic at all, a basic heart shape will work just fine.


Step 2: Tear the construction paper into strips. From there, have your kiddos tear the paper into small pieces.

Tearing the paper is always a lot of fun for little ones. Really itty bitty babes might need help with this, or you might just want to present them with the paper already torn. Older kids love using their muscles and showing off their strength to tear the paper.



Step 3: Use school glue or a glue stick to evenly spread glue around the center of the heart shape. 

Instruct your kiddos to adhere the paper pieces to the heart, in any way they like... side by side, overlapping until all of the white space is covered by the colored pieces of paper.


Step 4: Let it dry, snap a pic & share!

Let the craft dry completely, and snap a pic of your sweet little one with their project. You can hang this up, frame it and add it to your Valentine's Day decor, or share it with a special family member or friend. They made such adorable gifts! You can even make these on a smaller scale and frame them to give as gifts for Valentine's Day.

I remember making this craft with B when he was around Bean's age. He loved it, and Bean loved making this, too. No surprise there. It's easy, quick, fun, and it's great to make at home, in the classroom, for class parties, etc.

I hope you'll give this cute craft a try with your little ones & be sure to snap a pic and tag us @mommysblckparty if you do! We'd love to see how yours turned out!

Happy crafting!
