Heart printing (Valentines craft)
We love messy play here at TaoJJ and with it being Valentines today what else could we do but print hearts.
This activity is great for toddlers and very simple. All you need is paper, paint, old clothes or coverall bibs for little ones and a toilet roll.
To create the heart shape simply flatten the toilet roll
then push one edge into the roll and tape.
Then set your little one to work, dipping then stamping.
This activity helped fill an hour during a rain storm and was a thrifty way to celebrate Valentines day. Jack had fun stamping but as usual got a little freaked out by the paint on his hands. Never known a child not to like getting their hands messy.
We gave our painting to Daddy but you could use yours for cards, wrapping paper, decorations, the only limits is your imagination. For slightly older children you could try stamping using glue then sprinkle glitter over the top.
