artsy ideas for kids and families

Last Year’s Valentine

I draw a heart for Little J and ask him if he can draw a heart.
He does draw his first heart as one of his first tries at representational drawing.
He does this on a huge piece of paper that wraps a low table set up for scribbling and Valentines.

He writes little pretend letters inside the heart using a pencil and flashlight.
On the huge piece of paper, we set up a drawing robot that Big K and the boys build using the idea from Teacher Tom’s blog.

We print photos of the heart with the robot scribbles and use them when making Little J’s very first classmate Valentines.

We cut out hearts using brown paper bags from the grocery store.
We write a loving message and Little J’s name in silver Sharpie.
We modge podge paper bag hearts with crayon wrapper pieces.

This project takes about a month to complete given all the little parts.
It is set up at a table during this month so we can work on whenever the mood strikes.
