5. Valentine’s Day Art Projects: Hand Holding Heart

I love this project because students brainstorm and write positive and kind words on construction paper. Then, they add texture to several pieces of colored construction paper using the side of their crayon. They trace their hand and a heart and cut them out. They glue their hand and heart onto their kind words. You can read more about this kindness art project at Mrs. Pearce’s Art Room.

November 13th is observed as World Kindness Day, and this art project perfectly fits the occasion.
