Paper Towel Roll Heart Stamp Valentine Craft

This weekend, was our first weekend without a ton of plans, or house guests (although we miss our house guests..aka my parents, very much!) we had to keep Lennox busy. So on Sunday I had a bunch of crafts planned for her to have fun with. She loves getting down and dirty with paint – ha!

I will be sharing all the crafts we did, but first up today will be the Paper Towel Roll Heart Stamps. This craft is probably one of the cheapest crafts you can do with kids of all ages – it’s great for very young children – as well as older that want to expand on it a bit or experiment with making patterns, mixing colors, etc.

  • Empty paper towel rolls or toilet paper rolls
  • Tape
  • Paint
  • Paper
  • Glitter (optional)

Make a heart out of one end of the paper roll and then tape it in place – every one that you make will be a little different of a heart shape, which is fun and nice! I then took the paint, and put different colors on disposable plates (easy clean up!). You can use the same paper roll heart for all the paint and mix, or have a different heart for each color. I had a different heart for each color.
