Painted newspaper hearts are one of the coolest, simplest crafts—ever! Cover your table with newspaper (words are better than photos). Get out the washable watercolor paints and brushes. Then set your kids to work painting away on the newspaper.
Hang the newspaper to dry. When dried, use a heart template and cut out lots of hearts. Glue onto postcards, construction paper or cardstock to make into Valentine’s Day cards for classmates or friends.
This craft is especially great for younger children.
