Magic Hearts

So I'm not a huge fan of Valentine's Day. It's just not a day that's really that important to me. (It does have special meaning because that is the holiday I started dating my husband many moons ago, but other than that I just don't get to into it.) This is no excuse for my kids to not be into it, so today we made Valentine Magic Hearts. Featured on http://preschoolalphabet.blogspot.com.

It's actually quite simple. All you  need is a white crayon, thick paper, a heart stencil (unless you can freehand. I don't trust myself), scissors, and watercolors.  1) Cut out some heart shapes, preferably on thick paper. I used card stock. You can use regular paper, but the watercolors will soak it. 2) Draw a design with the white crayon. 3) Paint over it with the watercolors to reveal the secret message.

My little princess loved watching the watercolor slide off the crayon. We made cute little messages and this afternoon, I'll let her hang them on the doors. Maybe she will have a better attitude about Valentine's Day than I do.
