Fold Over Valentines



  • ~ White paper
  • ~ Scissors
  • ~ Red & White tempera paint


  • Fold the white paper in half and cut out a heart half.
  • For older preschoolers, draw a line for them to follow and allow them to use safety scissors to practice their cutting skills.
  • Unfold the heart.
  • Squirt several drops of red and white tempera paints on one half of the heart.
  • Fold the heart in half again.
  • Gently rub to mix the paints.
  • It's a good idea to spread newspaper on the table for this project. The paint will sometimes squeeze past the edges of the heart.
