Lorelai has been begging me to do crafts today. Unfortunately, no new printables are made up right now, and we don’t have a printer here in Maryland. So I came up with this fun little painting activity for this afternoon. It was super easy and the hearts came out really cute! We did a similar activity last year ~ Crayon & Watercolor Easter Egg, that she really enjoyed.

What You Need:

  • Cardstock Paper
  • White Crayon
  • Watercolors & Paintbrushes

What To Do:

  • Draw a heart or two on your cardstock paper.
  • Have your child do a design within the heart with his/her white crayon.
  • Have them paint over the design with watercolors.
  • Allow to dry.
  • Cut out the hearts (optional) and display!

Tips:

  • Make sure the chalk lines are heavy so that the watercolors don’t cover it up.
  • If your watercolors do cover it up, just spread out the paint some ~ it should settle around the crayon marks.
  • This is also a good way to make homemade valentines. Just fold your paper over in half first to make the card.
