Valentine Card Craft for Preschoolers
Providing kids with time for arts and crafts gives them opportunities to work on important skills.
This construction paper craft provides an opportunity to teach or review the “heart” shape. It also provides scissor skills practice as kids cut out the shapes. They’ll also build fine motor skills as they punch holes in the hearts and thread them on the lollipop.
What You’ll Need
- Cardboard (just a small piece)
- scrapbook paper or sturdy construction paper
- small hole punch
- glue stick
How to Make This Construction Paper Craft
Fold your paper in half lengthwise. Trace the half heart template you made matching the long straight edge of it up with the fold. You will need to cut out 4 hearts for each lollipop.
Cut out the half hearts, and then unfold them to reveal the full-sized hearts.
Punch a hole about ¼” from the tip of each heart.
Gluing between each layer, just at the tip of the heart, stack 4 hearts on top of one another in a flower shape and be sure to align all 4 holes directly on top of eachother.
Use a pencil or a marker to write your friend’s name somewhere on the “flower”.
Place the lollipop stick through the center of the holes and it’s ready to give away!
