Glitter Valentine's Day Heart Resist

What kid doesn’t love glitter? And when it comes to Valentine’s Day crafts for children, do you think back to those sparkle-covered homemade cards from your own youth? I do! Ah, the sheer joy in tossing glitter about – hoping it would land in the glue, but not really caring if it did (because you weren’t the one doing the after-art cleaning).

So, you have to do the cleaning now. But, should that stop you from breaking out the sparkly stuff? This super-easy Valentine’s Day art activity is a project that also doubles as a cute card. Leave the glitter heart resist as is or fold the paper in half and deliver it to grandma, grandpa or any special friend!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        Card stock paper

·        Glitter

·        Clear-drying school glue

·        Scissors

·        A marker or crayon

·        A paintbrush

Here’s What to Do:

1.     Fold a piece of paper in half, book style.

2.     Draw half of a heart, starting at the fold (this is a great opportunity to teach your child a math lesson).

5.     Paint a layer of glue over the heart (holding it down), extending a few inches from the edges. You can help your child by holding the heart for her as she paints. Squeeze a quarter-sized dollop of glue onto the paper, and then have her spread it out.
