Make a cute, 3D ornament for Valentine's Day. A simple paper craft, yet a great decoration that you can hang around the room.
Take two sturdy paper plates. With crayons/paint/markers, draw on one of them a heart of the size that you want. As it's Valentine, paint it red. (Or you may color it according to your wish). This will be your template.
Cut out from the other plate a heart of the same size as the template piece. Adult assistance may be required in doing this.
Cut on one of the dotted line right up to the center.
Pick out the two matching hearts.
Slide the hearts together, top to bottom.
Glue a ribbon or thread onto the top (or hole punch a small hole and tie a ribbon/thread through it)
Your 3D Valentine heart is ready.
Options:In case you are not too happy with simply coloring the template, you can try out an innovation.
Mix together the flour, salt, food coloring, and enough water to make a dripping consistency. See that the mixture doesn't get too runny.
Use the popsicle stick to drip it onto paper shapes. Dry hard and sparkly.
Take a piece of chalk and rub it with course sandpaper to get chalk dust.
Pour the dust over glue covered paper. It would be nice to use pink chalk dust.
NOTE: In case you don't want to go into the hassles of coloring your 3D heart, you can cut out a red construction paper of the same size and paste it on your template.
