Valentine Crafts Activities for Kids: Make a Suncatcher

Cut the construction paper into small squares, then punch the hearts from the paper.

Work with your preschooler if paper punching is new to him. This activity can be very difficult for small hands and fingers but great fine motor skill work.

Valentine Crafts for kids: cute heart suncatcher activity

Valentine Crafts for Kids

Place contact paper onto your table. Secure it with painters tape. Allow your child to pour, pinch, place, dump, shake – whatever method he chooses – the paper hearts onto the contact paper. Take time to explore the table and create a lovely design, together. I used this time as an opportunity to discuss “love”: What is love? What do we love in life? We also took this time to add stickers and medium and large paper heart cut outs.

Catch The Sun

To finish up the project, I cut out two hearts (one for each of my boys) from the contact paper and outlined it with sticker paper. Placing the hearts on the windows was lovely. The boys were so happy to see their work displayed and to see the light shine through their hearts.

  2. great idea, like it more than the crayon shaving, waxpaper suncatcher but the directions are confusing — I think you mean to say put the punched hearts onto the contact paper and the last step is also confusing, i am assuming you have to fold the contact paper at some point and then cut it into a heart shape.

    overall depth of field and one can set shutter speed to get the
