Super Simple Heart Picture Frame Craft

Today, I have a cute, super simple craft for you that I came up with to include my young toddler in our Valentine’s Day crafting. This Heart Picture Frame Craft turned out really cute, and N loved that it features his artwork 🙂

E kept talking about what a good job her little brother did, and she helped me put the picture frame together.

Materials for Heart Picture Frame Craft

  • Paper.
  • Cardboard. {I used part of a diaper box. It worked well, but the material doesn’t have to be quite that thick, and thinner cardboard would be way easier to cut.}
  • Markers, crayons or colored pencils for coloring.
  • Scissors.
  • Knife (optional).
  • Glue or glue stick.
  • Sticky tape.

I printed out a simple heart outline made from two heart shapes in Word, but you could hand draw your shape.

N colored the heart.

and traced it on the cardboard.

Then I simply glued the paper heart and the cardboard heart together.

E really wanted some of her artwork included, too, so I used some paper she’d drawn on earlier in the day as the backing.
