DIY Cardboard Roll Heart Stamp ~ Easy Valentine Craft Ideas for Preschoolers
We are all about simple Valentines Craft ideas. We recycled a watercolor painting my daughter created a while ago, into a beautiful Valentines Masterpiece. Watercolors are one of her favorite mediums to explore. This particular painting, was a brightly colored watercolor abstract. The perfect backdrop for printing our Cardboard Heart Stamp.
Heart Cardboard Tube Stamping
- We shaped a recycled cardboard tube into a simple Heart stamp. This can be done by simply creasing the cardboard roll in 2 places and manipulating it into the shape of a heart. It is really easy to do, but I find that kids find this step difficult so I make the heart stamps ahead of time.
- Red Tempera Paint
- Paper plate and felt to make our homemade stamp pad.
- Previously painted heavy weight paper
I love how the crisp hearts contrast against the brightly painted watercolor paper.
