Heart Art Projects

Sharing is caring!

With love in the air, we’re turning our arty crafty hands to Valentine’s Day-themed activities and today I have the pleasure of showing you 18 brilliant Heart Art Projects for kids, that use a variety of processes and mediums to encourage creative freedom and exploration.

And while we have labelled them as ‘Valentine’s Art’, in reality, these projects are great for any occasion and if gifted, they’ll certainly warm hearts.

They say that variety is the spice of life and as with all ’round-ups’ featured on Arty Crafty Kids, I aim to appeal to all age groups and abilities to ensure that you’ll find something inspiring for your Arty Crafty Kids.

So without further ado, let’s take a look!
