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.)
Valentine’s Day Craft for Kids: Glitter Hearts
Materials for Glitter Hearts Craft for Kids
- Thick paper (You could use cardstock or construction paper.)
- Cardboard Tube (toilet paper roll or paper towel roll
- Liquid glue
- Glitter (We received ours free from Craftprojectideas.)
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.
Dip your cardboard tube into the glue and stamp it onto your paper.
Sprinkle the glue liberally with glitter.
Shake of the excess and voila- beautiful 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!
Tip: Toddlers can take part in this Valentine’s Day craft too! My 2 year old LOVED sprinkling the glitter onto the glue!
