I had hearts all cut out and ready to glue onto our letter H, but then I came across an activity that I just knew would be perfect. I know it’s only been a week since I shared one of my favorite Tinkerlab activities, but she is just so FABULOUS I can’t help myself! I suspect her N is a lot like Little M when it comes to art, it’s lucky for them that their Mommies care so much about the process and not so much about the product.
what you need: Letter H ~ construction paper ~ potato ~ knife ~ tempera paint
This picture is terrible, sorry, the clouds were not working with me! Once I had the Letter H glued to the construction paper, I carved a heart into a potato. I started by cutting the potato in half and then worked the shape in. I made sure to go pretty deep into the potato, the sides of the heart were about 1/2 an inch tall.
That’s it! Stop here to find activities to pair with your letter of the week.
Wondering where Little M’s heart stamps are? She did get a few stamps in before pressing her hands into the paint. Check back next Thursday and you’ll see how we turned her hand painting in to thank you cards!
