Heart Window Art for Kids

Emma Smith

It’s getting closer to Valentine’s Day and it’s time to start thinking about crafts and activities that you can do with the children to celebrate the Day of Love. Ideas that span age groups and can be done collaboratively with siblings or in groups within a classroom are always fun to do and embrace the ethos of the day. If those projects can then be put on display, it’s even better. Window art is fun and when it’s not going to be a pain to remove or clear up it’s even better – here’s a fun Window Cling Heart Art that kids of all ages will enjoy.

Contact paper is a fabulous medium for kids to use to create art and projects on as it sticks easily and doesn’t leave a residue when it’s removed, perfect for seasonal crafts. It also produces a stained glass effect when used on windows. This art project produces that stained glass effect; however, unlike many projects with contact paper that use tissue paper, this uses an easy tape resist painting effect. Check out the bonus activity at the end for a simple Valentine’s Day Card that kids can make at the same time.
