Hearts are such a fun shape to play with and depending on your child's ability this could be a great craft to show your child how to cut a paper heart. If they are still too little they will still have fun with the painting!

Gather your materials. You will need some water colors, a feather, white paper, cup of water, and scissors.

Start by folding the paper and cutting it into a heart. If your child is able have them do this step.

Next dip your feather into the water and watercolors.

Paint!

Let dry and give your heart to someone you love!
