This DIY Heart Stamps for kids craft is a favorite around our house! The stamp is so easy to make but the fun is endless. Every picture made with the heart stamp is unique. We love displaying heart stamp work in our house. Each of my children have one of their heart stamp projects framed and in their room. When they feel like making new ones with different colors, we will just switch out old picture for the new. This art craft project is very inexpensive and you more than likely have everything that you need right in your house. Adults will enjoy this activity just as much as the kids will. It is a perfect Valentine’s Day craft or great for any day of the year.
DIY Heart Stamps For Kids Tutorial
DIY Heart Stamp Supplies Needed:
- paint (any color will do) I chose Valentine’s colors
- printer paper or cardstock
- a paper roll (from paper towels, toilet paper, or even wrapping paper)
Before you and your kiddos start stamping, you want to bend your paper roll into the shape of a heart. Just press down in the middle towards one end of the roll. You might need to shape it a little with your fingers. It should end up looking something like this:
Once you have your stamp shaped, you are ready for the paint! Pour several different colors on a clean sheet of paper. We used red, pink and purple. Dip your stamp into a color and start stamping on your paper. No need to wipe the stamp off before moving to the next color. Stamp as many hearts as you would like. One of my children loved to fill his paper up while my other liked to just dab a few hearts on her paper! Each child will have a different idea of what his or hers will look like. I just love that uniqueness that comes out with crafts like these.
After you let the heart stamping dry, you could hang it up in your child’s room, hang it on the fridge, or even send their handmade masterpiece to a relative or friend!
