Teaching 2 and 3 Year Olds: Marbled Valentines Hearts for Young Children
Marbled Valentines Hearts are a fun way to explore color mixing and print making in a hands-on manner, perfect for those early years…

When the 2 year olds arrived, I had trays of shaving cream and paint at the art table, along with some brushes.

The preschoolers took the brush and swirled the paint and shaving cream mixture.

I then handed them a heart-shaped piece of paper to set on top of the mixture.

I had to try it, too. It felt like a pillow! This was the most fun for the children, and I can see why!

Such a sensory delight! Swirls of colorful foam.

I sprinkled some glitter into the mixture.

After patting the paper, the preschoolers peeled it away from the foamy paint.

Each heart looked very different. And every time that heart was peeled from the marbled mixture, a smile erupted from the artist’s face.

The marbled Valentines hearts were carefully placed on trays to dry.

  1. We just did some hearts over here at Dabbling Momma using shaving cream too and it was fun! My 3.5 year old seems unsure of the ‘feel’ of the cream but she was a trooper and completed the craft. I for one really enjoy crafting with shaving cream and a bonus is the pretty smell that lingers on the paper afterwards!! http://dabblingmomma.blogspot.com/2014/02/shaving-foam-hearts.html
