I love doing collages with my girls. Why? It’s easy to do with preschoolers, and I love the way it turns out. We’ve seen in on my blog before with the Time Capsule , Cupcake Liner Art and even (in a way) Making a Letter with Letters. As I’ve been looking at blogs or following along on Pinterest I’ve thought, “There are a lot of clever hearts out there.” I decided I could showcase them by doing a large heart collage. Unfortunately, I didn’t print out enough hearts, and we didn’t finish in time. So, I’ll have to replace this original picture once it’s done. It’s starting to look cool. In retrospect, I wish I had made them a bit bigger so I could really showcase them well. It’s easier to see in person too.
First, I got a big cardboard box and cut out a huge heart.
Next, I had the girls paint the heart red.
I am a new follower and love the intent of your blog! 🙂

I’m glad you’re following along, Holly. I’m a teacher by trade too, so I hope there will be things you can use with your students as well.
Such a cute idea! We may have to try one out with clovers for St. Pat’s day!!
Love that idea. I may have to do the same. Let me know if you do it.
