This is a fun activity for younger kids to do with a bit of help or older kids to do as a gift for Valentine's Day. Preschoolers and school children can practice their cutting out and pasting skills, while toddlers can work on the fine motor skills associated with composing a collage and sticking down paper to produce an artwork they will enjoy creating and giving.

Method
Draw a heart shape on the piece of red paper.



heart


Cut the heart shape out. This can be done by adults for younger children, or by the children themselves if they can use scissors well. Hearts can be a little more difficult than regular shapes for young children to cut out, so they may need some assistance with this.



materials


Cut the red piece of paper into small differently shaped pieces



materials


Glue the red pieces onto the heart. For a younger child, you could get this activity ready and introduce it to them at this stage. If they are really young, you can put glue onto the heart and show them how to stick the papers down onto it. Older kids can use the glue themselves to create the collage.
