This is a great project for boys and girls. This can be done with any free coloring pages you find to your liking online. I found some cute teddy bears, Pooh characters, even a super cute Ninjago one (link here). Just Google for free Valentine coloring pages.
What you will need:
- Printer and computer/tablet/or smart phone and a sheet of printer paper
- Find a free coloring page online you like and print it out
- Clear Shelf liner (Contact paper)
- Tissue paper in at least 2 different colors
- Heart paper punch (size about 1 inch)
TIP: You don’t need a heart paper punch. Other shapes will work as well and you can even forgo it completely and just tear pieces of tissue paper for a more rustic look.
TIP: You could have your little one color the picture too
Cut out the heart on your coloring page. Also cut two pieces of the contact paper large enough to cover that area.
Place one piece of contact paper over the front side of the picture over the heart cutout. Place face down on table.
It’s ok if the pieces aren’t perfectly placed. Some of the ones she put on were crumpled and folded up and that’s ok.
Note: the left edge has some overhang from the contact paper. Trim off any overhanging contact paper.
Place the other sheet of contact paper over the tissue paper. Start on one edge, line it up as close as you can. Then pull back the rest of the backing paper and set it down like in the picture above.
