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.)

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!
