Heart Collage

scrap or decorative (or handmade) papers cut into squares, a large white paper cut into a square, scissors, pencils, glue sticks

  1. make sure you have enough hearts that can fit across the white paper vertically and horizontally, with enough extras to do the heart cutting
  2. glue squares in a grid all over the page (I always have children glue on the back of the piece and on the table or a “messy mat” so they don’t get their final product all gluey)
  3. with one square at a time, fold it in half and draw a half heart (this can be done ahead of time for young children, so all they have to do is cut and glue)
  4. keeping the paper folded, cut along the half-heart pencil line, then unfold
  5. glue the hearts or negative space hearts on top of the squares (or not!)
