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.
PAPER TOWEL ROLL HEART STAMP VALENTINE’S CRAFT
- Empty paper towel rolls or toilet paper rolls
- 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.
Once everything is all set up – just dip the hearts into the paint and let your little one use them like stamps on white paper, canvas – whatever you want to paint on! I used white card stock this time.
And that’s it! Let it dry and you’re done! It’s simple and quick – so it will old your little one’s attention. We did 4 sheets worth of hearts – Lennox had a good time and I hope your kid(s) will too!
