There's Magic Out There: Potato Heart Print Valentines

Potato Heart Print Valentines

Here at the house we have been getting excited for Valentines Day. The house was feeling a little empty without all the decorations and tree so we started with some Valentines decorating and this weekend we made some easy to do Valentines Cards.

I don't know if you remember but we used potatoes to make Heart prints last year while learning about the Letter H and I wanted to use that idea to make Potato Heart Print Valentines!

Its super easy to do, you get a potato and cut into it to make a heart (I did one on each end), grab some paint and paper and have fun making some prints! This weekend was so sunny that we had to go outside and soak up the sunshine so I took out a table and our materials to do the prints outside.
After we made lots of hearts we let them dry and enjoyed being outside on such a beautiful winter day.

Later during the day I cut out a bunch of the hearts in various shades of red and got paper and a glue stick to decide where I wanted them to go. You can put them inside, outside, everywhere! They all look pretty, trust me and its fun for the munchkins to be sticking them everywhere.
I then took out my stamps and started making some messages on the cards. You can always use markers or crayons to write out a special message if you don't have stamps.
They will be a special Home made treat for your loved ones and they are super easy to do so. Hope you make some of your own and have fun while doing them!

  1. So cute! I might try it with my toddler class tomorrow morning. Wonder how potatoes stamping would work with a stamp pad - I'm not brave enough for paint with a bunch of little guys...

  6. I live with an Irish man, so we have plenty of potatoes in the house! Son is too young to do crafts so I may have to do this own on my own. hahaha

  12. Hi Alvina,
    Those are such wonderful crafts to do. My youngest would more than likely paint the wall instead of the poster board, but I guess I can always paint the wall over her. Thank you for sharing these crafts.
    Thank you also for linking up with us at the Thumping Thursdays Blog Hop.
