Heart Stamps

I am always looking for fun, simple crafts to do with my 2 year old and 4 year old. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, I came across this easy project full of love. Heart stamps made from toilet paper rolls! Genius idea!

Because we are making these hearts for Valentine’s Day, I dug out our red and pink washable paints.

Next, I formed a heart shape with the paper roll. Then, I secured the shape with tape.

Finally, I handed it to my little men and they created beautiful, but messy, works of art.

They had such a great time working on these pictures, that the next day we did it again. The second time we we used different colors and experimented with different shapes.

Love the way this turned out!!! Check out Instagram to see the experimental art from round two.

    This is such a great idea! I would love to make valentines with my two year old with your idea, and add it to my own ideas and put it in a post in my brand spankin new blog (1 week in) with a link to your blog. I have been making valentines that he colors on since he was a baby and this would be a nice new spin. I didn’t know how else to get a hold of you and I thought I should ask before I put a link on my blog. Please let me know what you think. Thanks!
