As YC was on a playdate the other day she missed out on doing our secret love notes.  Therefore we needed to come up with a Valentine’s craft for her to do. YC loves cutting things out and is always asking if she can have a piece of paper to cut up. It made sense then to do a craft that really concentrated on that love of cutting.  Which is why we have this paper heart craft.

Make sure you follow my Valentine’s craft board on Pinterest for more ideas and don’t forget to save the pin for later.

You will need:

  • Different coloured paper
  • Pencil
  • Pen
  • Scissors
  • Glue

On the piece of paper draw hearts of increasing size.

Cut them out and glue them on top of each other.

If you want you can get your little one to write a Valentine’s message on the back.

Top tip:

If you find that your little one is having problems cutting then draw a smiley face on their thumbnail and tell them to keep it facing up.

I remember being told by my reception teacher that you need to keep the scissors still (pointing up) and move the paper. This makes it much easier when you have rounded edges or fiddle parts to cut out.
