They can also be used to create templates and stencils so you can add coloured hearts and outlines to pictures, bags, clothes and walls etc.
There are some great ideas of how you can use our heart outline below if you need some inspiration.
Valentines or Mothers Day Cards
Use any of the love heart outlines to make a cute card for a preschooler to give to any member of the family.
A cute idea is to ask the child to practice their cutting skills to cut out the heart. Stick it onto a blank card. Then add small pieces of red tissue paper to the heart shape. Next, write “I love you to pieces” on the front of the card.
Fun fact: 145 million cards are sent on valentines day each year.
Print out one of the heart shapes and apply it to some cardboard. Cut out the heart shape. Use different shades of red yarn to wrap around the heart
This is such a cute craft for preschoolers. Grab a few toilet roll tubes and glue a small heart that you have cut out and coloured in, onto the front of the tube. Then apply
- facial features using googly eyes or felt pens,
- arms using concertina folded paper
- and maybe pipe cleaner hair
Pin the heart on the Body
Take a large piece of paper (or lots stuck together) and draw around your preschooler. Draw or stick-on facial features and hair.
Next pin the body up on the wall, fence or even a tree. Then ask your preschooler to pin one of the cutout heart outlines onto the body where they think it should be.
As an extension, you could
- make it a little more challenging and try it blindfolded.
measure the length of the body as well if you fancy incorporating a little bit of maths
Hearts are traditionally red but why not let your little one create hearts in any colour such as purple, gold, pink, blue, or orange. There is no end to the range of crafts you could use these heart outlines for – we hope you like our ideas and are creative and come up with some of your own.
