Hearts, Xs and Os - so many fun shapes at Valentine's Day! We used cardboard from our recycle bin and some paint to make this fun collaborative piece of Valentine artwork!

Start with:

  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • 1 inch Hole Punch (optional)

Create it!

Step 1: Have your little one paint a piece of cardboard. Allow to dry.

Step 2: Cut out heart shapes and short strips (to glue together to form the letter x) and use hole punch or cut circles for the letter o.

Step 3: Let your little one glue the Valentine cardboard pieces to the piece of painted cardboard.

Step 4: Finish with a little contrasting color paint. (We used red!)

We used a mixture of cardboard with colors already printed on them and painted a few pieces of standard uncolored cardboard. So much fun to see what your little artist will create!
