I reached back to my days in elementary school and brought out a craft that I always looked forward to each year: making animals and other things out of hearts. All ages love this craft! If your kids are very intricate in their design, then they can really get carried away with this.
The first page of the PDF is black and white and can be used for printables that the younger children can cut and color. It can also just be used as reference, allowing the older kids to use this as a guide. The objects are mouse, bird, fish, butterfly, flower, and tree.
The second page is in color, so be careful when you are printing if you don’t want to use up your ink. If you only want page 1, make sure you select that through your print options. This page can be printed out in color for each child and then they can decorate the page with their objects. I sized the objects on page 1, so that they can be cut and glued on to here and still be in perspective. Of course, in my creative eye I would love to see this done on a large scale. Cut out different color hearts from construction paper and have the older kids layer them in. Notice how the grass’s hearts are turned upside down to give the pointy effect of grass. Layering the hearts yourself will give you the ability to poke stuff down into the layers in order to create depth.
This is an a PDF format, but if you need it in a different format, just let me know. I had so much fun just creating this, and I know y’all will enjoy bringing it to life.
