Looking for an easy Valentine’s Day craft for toddlers and preschoolers to make on their own? In this video clip (filmed for ehow.com), I show you how you can use a heart shaped doily to make pretty Valentine’s Day art!
Using liquid watercolor, watercolor paints or large dot markers, children can decorate the doilies. The thin paper of the doilies works well with the watercolors; allowing colors to bleed and blend (slightly) as children paint or dot their hearts as they like. Once dry, parents and teachers can mat the doilies with construction paper or cardstock for durability. Great art that can be used for making Valentine’s Day cards or displayed in classrooms!
