Holidays, Kids' Art Projects

Valentine’s Day Marbled Print Art

As a preschool art teacher, I have to say that I strongly favor process-based art for kids. The research all shows that the true benefit of art for kids comes from the process of making something- mixing colors, experimenting with lines and swirls, and getting hands-on experience with creative expression. Your average Valentine’s Day art projects for kids, with their prescribed colors and shapes and outcomes, are typically not in line with process-based activities.

But.

I’m also a mother. I want some art for my dang refrigerator, gosh darn it.

So I’ve created this fun, process based art activity that will end with a product that you can display.  By limiting the colors you present the kids with (pink, purple, and red for example), you can ensure that this process based Valentine’s Day art project stays on theme- and the kids will be none the wiser.

Celebrate Valentine's Day with your kids with this adorable heart shaped, marbled shaving cream art. Kids will swirl colors before creating beautiful, swirling hearts.
