This activity is perfect for children aged 5+. Really all sorts of things can be used to make these valentine wall decorations. You could use sequins, ribbons, even plastic bottle lids.  Here are some other ideas to get the activity underway!

You Will Need:

  • Bag of random buttons
  • Tissue paper
  • Glue 
  • Small A5 sizes canvases
  • A5 piece of cardboard
  • Scissors

What to Do

First using the card, draw and cut out a heart template then place this on the canvas and draw around it to leave the heart shape.

Vary using either buttons, or small scrunched up pieces of tissue paper and stick the back of them with glue to then place on the outline of the heart. Once the heart is outlined you can then start to fill it in.


Tip: You can experiment with different colours and all sorts of materials – let your imagination go!
