doodlebugs 2.11.11, heart art, part III

today was week three of more heart art. there are just so many fun ideas for creating heart loveliness! fortunately, valentine's day is in three days and everyone can have a break from our heart fever.

we had three stations today:
first, there were "handy" hearts, where kiddos could experiment with different ways to make hearts with your hands, including fingerprints, handprints, and using the sides of the palm (pictured in my sample above).

second, we used a print making technique & traditional valentine colors to create 4 x 6 art works. we'd used the bottoms of cake & pie tins to do this before, but using the cookie sheets and taping off the rectangles was an inspiration i found here, via the crafty crow.

finally, the hearts created when i made stencils for a previous project were decorated with tissue paper collage.

as always, supplies crossed tables, allowing for even more creativity and variety with the activities. we were busy little cupids, that's for sure.
