A beautiful fun project with toddlers this morning at the OKCMOA. First we gathered for circle time and read, What is Valentines Day? It is a short little lift the flap book that the children really enjoyed. Then I spoke to the children about light. We visited the Jason Peters Exhibit and looked at how he uses light.
In the classroom I had contact paper taped to the table ready for the kids to apply cut tissue paper, printed cellophane and Valentine glitter. We finished by adding another piece of contact paper on top of that and glued a red construction paper frame to the top. To this we added peel and stick foam hearts. These will look beautiful in any window!
You will need -contact paper -construction paper for frame -tape to keep contact paper flat -scissors -glue for frame -cut tissue paper -sequins and stickers
I found printed cellophane treat bags and cut those up too!
Wife, Mom, Artist and Education Coordinator at City Arts Center. I believe art is a child's first written language. They have a creative spirit and imagination others tend to lose as they grow up. Many famous artists have tried to duplicate the way children paint and draw knowing that children have a true artistic bravery, unafraid and unabashed. I have the wonderful opportunity to share art with children and watch this process unfold. It truly is magical.
