Valentine’s Day

We have been going a bit crazy with Valentine’s this year. Some years I don’t do anything and others seem to be full of glitter and hearts every day for weeks. This lesson evolved this morning from the other flying hearts lesson and turned out cute!.

Each student had a partner and traced each other’s hands

Then cut, and glue onto a heart with a tiny heart inside

Some kids colored the wings and added glitter.

At the end of class I took a few artoworks into the kiln room with the vent on and sprayed a heart doily with silver for a nice accent! It looked so cool!

  2. I'm guessing you had to cut out all the middle pieces for them? Was this one session?

  5. Absolutely love this idea. In my Year 2 class, we started by tracing the hands today. Just wondering where I could find an image of the wings to copy.
