Paint Splatter Heart Craft

Time for another Valentine’s Day craft from our weekend of crafts the other week! Lennox really loved this one and it’s another one that you should have all the supplies at home for already. This craft is what we called the Paint Splatter Hearts. Paint Splatter Hearts - A Valentine's Day Craft for KidsFor this craft you just need paper (I used white card stock) and paint! I used Acrylic paints as they seem to be brighter and thicker.

She kept closing it and opening it again, then squishing it together again until she got it to the look she wanted! You could use only a few colors and talk about mixing colors to make new colors.
