A simple but effective activity to plan is a scissor skill heart collage invitation. Early learners will be able to explore luxurious craft supplies with unique properties and textures and complete a display-worthy project.
Craft Supplies To Collect
Gather craft supplies that can be cut and glued in the color scheme of your choice. I feature traditional Valentine’s Day hues, but any color scheme would work beautifully. Cut the materials a little smaller if desired, but keep them large enough for little ones to trim some more.
Included in this first compartment tray are:
- pipe cleaners
- crepe paper
- tin foil
- metallic purple paper
- foam strips
- heart patterned ribbon strips
- thin and thick ribbon strips
- paper doily pieces
- white and red bead garland
- heart garland
This second craft supply tray holds:
- pink and white crepe paper
- rose petals
- foam pieces
- Valentine’s envelopes
- white yarn
- cream lace
- paper strips
- red, gold, and white ribbon
- white bead garland
Making The Heart Collage Projects
Cut large hearts from fadeless construction paper.
Divide up the craft supplies into small trays.
Set up stations with a craft supply tray, pair of scissors, paper heart, white glue, and glue paddle.
Invite early learners to cut the supplies and glue them onto their hearts.
After the embellished hearts dry, hot glue a bow onto each one. Add loops of thin ribbon for hanging the crafts.
This scissor skill heart collage project gives little ones a chance to strengthen their finger muscles while learning how to cut and glue a variety of craft supplies. And the collaged hearts are sure to be treasured by loved ones.
