Valentine’s Day Craft for Kids: Glitter Hearts

Here’s an easy valentine’s day craft for kids- glitter hearts! They’re super simple to make and can be used to decorate just about anything! 

Valentine's Day Craft for Kids: Glitter Hearts

Lucy and I have been doing lots of art with hearts lately! Recently we’ve had lots of fun using a cardboard tube (toilet paper roll or paper towel roll) to stamp hearts with paint. This time we decided to do a slight variation and instead of  using paint, we stamped with glue and added glitter! (This post contains affiliate links to Amazon. Thank you so much for your support!)

Materials for Glitter Hearts

This is a fun and easy Valentine’s Day craft! First, get your cardboard tube and press it into a heart shape. This will be your stamp!

Get your glue ready by squeezing some into a container. 

Stamping Glue Hearts

Dip your cardboard tube into the glue and stamp it onto your paper.

Shake of the excess and voila- beautiful glitter hearts!

Valentine's Day Craft: Stamping Glitter Hearts

(Do you know the trick to getting all the unused glitter back into the container? Shake off the excess glitter over a paper plate or sheet of paper. Carefully fold your plate or paper in half forming a crease. Place the end of the crease right on top of your open container and slide that glitter right back in there!)

You can used these glitter hearts to make beautiful wall art or even to decorate valentines!
