Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and I have to admit, I think it’s a great holiday! It’s so fun to celebrate love, whether it’s toward our family or friends, and I love getting my kids involved in the excitement! Abby here from Sew Much Ado, and today I’m sharing an easy Valentine’s Day Kids Craft that will get you in the Valentine’s spirit!
This Heart Stamp Tree Art project is fun for kids of all ages. My 5 year old couldn’t stop saying, “I love this!” while she was stamping away.
You can download the free printables below to make an 8.5×11” art piece or smaller Valentine’s Day cards.
Let’s get started!
–foam heart stickers or foam craft sheet

Begin by either removing adhesive backing from pre-cut foam hearts or cutting your own from a foam craft sheet. Use a dab of e-6000 glue to attach flat end of shaker pegs to back of foam hearts and let dry completely.
Use link above to print tree art pages. If making cards, cut page in half along dotted line and fold each card in half to make two cards.
Put a coin-sized amount of each paint color on cardboard and dip one stamp into it. Dab a few times on cardboard until you like the stamping results.
Start stamping on your cardstock as desired! Begin with one color, and once dry, move onto another color, repeating until your are satisfied with your art.
Tip: It’s helpful to slightly roll the stamp from one side to the other to ensure complete coverage of paint onto the cardstock. Even the littlest hands can get the hang of this quickly after a few practices!
Great job! Give yourself and your little one a high five, and have a Happy Valentine’s Day!
