If you’re looking for ideas for Valentines Day art for kids, try this one!
We’ve combined some of our very favorite art techniques (and subjects) into an art activity that is fun to do, sweet to gift, and gorgeous hanging in the window!
First, we did melted crayon drawings…
…then we painted over and around our melted crayon hearts…
…and finally we added a coat of vegetable oil to give each Valentine artwork a stained glass effect.
I wrote the post for my friend Anna Ranson’s site, The Imagination Tree.
You can read the whole post there, including the details about the materials and steps and how we made the the hanging frames.
And while you’re there, make sure to see her many Valentine arts and crafts ideas, such as ::
