Every time I turn around, my kids are constantly creating. My two are very often doodling, drawing and even cutting paper here to make all sorts of creations.
No joking when I say that paper scraps are pretty much the norm here after hours of them hard at work coming up with their next master piece.
You name it they have made it. From paper cards, notes to even paper doll clothes, my girls use their creative abilities on a daily basis here. They also make all sorts of personalized cards, note and pictures.
So with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought what better time than now to enjoy a fun, easy, but colorful Valentine heart pieces kids craft card creation. See my two had some fun making this one.
Plus, this heart pieces kids craft is simply so easy and relatively inexpensive to make. If you have young kids in the house, you probably even have all the supplies on hand.

Easy Heart Pieces Kids Craft Card
List of Supplies for Easy Heart Pieces Kids Craft Card:
- Colored Craft Paper – 4-5 different colors including white
- Scissors (use scissors under adult supervision)
- Craft Glue
- Black Maker Pen
Instructions for Easy Heart Pieces Kids Craft Card:
- Take a rectangular white paper sheet and fold it into half along its long side. This will be the card. Now draw a simple heart pattern on the front side of the card. Use a pencil to trace the heart shape and then darken the heart using a black marker pen.
- Take 3-4 different colored craft papers and cut them into small square pieces. The square pieces do not need to be perfect, just cut them randomly but make sure that the size of all pieces are relatively close.
- Time to fill the heart pattern from step 1 with the colored square pieces. Simply use craft glue to stick the square pieces on the card, inside the heart pattern. Start gluing the squares from the sides of the heart.
- After tracing the sides of the heart with the square papers fill the inside of the heart.
- Now that the heart is filled with squares you can now add a few more squares to pop up the pattern with nice color combination.
- Done filling the heart? Now use a black marker pen to write the quote ‘I ‘ on the top left side of the heart and ‘you to pieces’ on the bottom right side of the heart’.
Have a Crafty Valentine’s day!
*Linking up with Kristi and Kenya for Finish the Sentence Friday with a photo share of my girls who happily love being budding artists.
Kenya G. Johnson says
That’s really cute. I miss doing stuff like that. 😉
Aw, thanks Kenya and I admit sometimes I get overwhelmed by just how crafty my girls are here in all honesty 🙂
Valerie Newman says
Yes, I’m going to Pin this and send it right over to my colleague who is still teaching preschool. Love it!
Aw, thanks Valerie and truly appreciate you pinning and sharing with your friend, too 🙂
Meredith Spidel says
What a sweet craft! And your girls are REALLY talented artists–wow! 🙂
Thanks Meredith and they truly get their artistic abilities from their father (he is the artist around here) 🙂
William Holland says
This is the nice part of having little kids that I miss. Not enough, mind you, to have another one. LOL Happy Weekend Janine! We made it through another week!
Aw, I hear you Bill and yes just happy it is indeed Friday here. Have a wonderful weekend now 🙂
Kristi Campbell says
Super cute and a great project for the tons of paper scraps we have around here too! Thanks!
Thank you and I couldn’t agree more perfect for those paper scraps indeed 😉
AnnMarie John says
I actually went out to find a heart puzzle today to do a craft with Madison this weekend for Valentine’s Day for her blog and I didn’t find anything. Seems like we might be doing this one as well, but I hope to get lucky. Here’s to a fantastic weekend my friend!
Aw, I hope you get lucky, too and have a wonderful weekend, as well 🙂
I was saying to Dana, earlier, the really cool thing about this week’s posts is not just the new stuff to learn (and as we know, clarks never get tired of that) but the step-by-step photos. Not just helpful but enjoyable to watch (you know, like those sped up vids of a pencil drawing a person’s face, slow enough so you get see the process before it makes sense and looks like face. And the ‘after’.
Aw, I agree very cool and I am all about learning new things, too here 🙂
Christine Carter says
Aw sooo cute!! All this Valentine stuff is making me miss grade school days…
If my kids were still young enough, I’d SO do this.
Thanks Chris and I am taking advantage of this time as long as I can with my two still 🙂
My walls look like that too! Liese has taken to making “windows” all over the house and we have about a billion of them all strewn and stuck to every wall right now!
Super cute craft, pinned 🙂
Aw, your walls do sound so similar to mine and definitely the home with young kids in it. Thanks for pinning, too Jen 🙂
Seana Turner says
Very cute card idea. We used to love making valentines for the friends and classmates. Also, great way to use up those pieces of construction paper that may have been partially used for another activity!
Thanks Seana and definitely agree great way to use those pieces of construction paper 😉
That is SO CUTE and perfect. My kids could easily do that for everyone in their classes. They love cutting paper. More than I do!
Mine, too! So definitely twins on this, as well 🙂
Pat B says
Oh, this brings back so many memories. We used to have all kinds of papers and craft things for our kids when they were young. It was kind of an endless supply, and this was before there were the kind of craft stores, etc that are available now. We never really lacked for materials though, and their creativity did the rest. Nice FTSF post with great photos.
Aw, thanks Pat and glad to bring back some great memories, too 🙂
When we were in Sedona, I saw pieces from an artist who made mosaics out of glass, with small broken pieces that created a beautiful scene. This art project reminds me of that, with construction paper instead of glass. What a fun project!
That truly sounds impressive and gorgeous. So love that this project reminded you of that, too Dana 🙂
It scares me to say this…but it’s time to get the littlest one started with some safety scissors. So this is a great fine-motor activity that all of our kids could enjoy now. Thanks so much for sharing at the #happynowlinkup!
Definitely would be a great activity for this and hope you can try with your son soon 🙂
