Valentine's Day Art

Had a burst of creativity for an art project with the boys. Some was directed toward fine motor skills for both boys (the punching of holes in construction paper), which of course turned into a competition of who could punch the most holes at once. I'm not going to complain about it because it was keeping them happy for a brief moment. Had planned on vacuuming the living room anyway, so a few extra bits of construction paper is no big deal.

Back to the art project, following is a quick directions and photos of what we did.

1. Punch holes in pink and red construction paper.

2. With clear contact paper, sticky side up, sprinkle dots all over the place. Yes, you can see sprinkles on this, but after putting top piece of contact paper on, I realize sprinkles weren't a great idea. Skipped the sprinkles on subsequent "runs".
3. Put a top piece of contact paper on. Would work with smaller pieces than I did, probably more of a square sided piece than rectangle. The contact paper would be more manageable to deal with.

4. Cut out heart shapes, any size you want. I folded the contact paper (loosely) in half to cut out the hearts.

5. Used clear tape to hang hearts on paper. If you look closely at the photo below, you can see what looks like frosted hearts with dots in them.
