All you need for this activity is a cardboard tube, paint, and a hair bobble! It makes a heart, perfect for a homemade Valentine's card.

Cardboard Heart Stamp Montage


Time: 10 minutes
Age: Under 5s
Level: Easy

Materials
Cardboard tube (e.g. from a kitchen roll)
Paint (I used acrylic in pink and red)
Hair bobble or elastic band
Paper or card
Felt-tip pen (optional)

Method
Bend the cardboard tube in half and secure by putting the hair bobble or elastic band round and wrapping it a few times.



Cardboard tube, paper


Put the paint into wide bottomed tubs.
Dip the heart shaped tube into the paint and coat it well.
Do a few test stamps to make sure that the coverage is right and the cardboard tube is evenly folded.



Heart stamps, paper


Stamp your paper and card with the heart stamper.
Leave to dry and then, using the felt-tip, add an arrow on each heart.
