How to craft together this heart learning activity for my preschooler
Cut out a heart shape from each of your colored poster boards 6 times.
Then cut out the same heart shape size with your transparent folder inserts.
Next, you will use a fine point sharpie marker or a marker, pen… you have on hand to trace that same heart shape and a smaller one within it on the 6 poster boards.
Cut the inner heart to create a stencil. Do this 6 times to complete 6 hearts.
Next insert your transparent folder divider hearts in between two of your post board heart cutouts with a hot glue gun to sandwich them together.
You are ready to play and learn with these shape cards!
My 4 year old loved learning about color mixing this way
Grab each color and move them on top of each other to see how red and yellow makes orange and yellow and blue makes green!
How neat is that?
Call out what shape the cards are.
This is a wonderful Valentines Idea for Preschool!
Preschoolers will learn with them theme, “hearts” for the month of February along with learning about the basic colors!
