Cardboard Heart Stamp
Toilet roll tube
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.
: 10 minutes
: Under 5s
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)
Bend the cardboard tube in half and secure by putting the hair bobble or elastic band round and wrapping it a few times.
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.
Stamp your paper and card with the heart stamper.
Leave to dry and then, using the felt-tip, add an arrow on each heart.
