Making a Tissue Paper Heart Card
Take the tissue paper sheets and tear into small squares and rectangles. These don’t have to be evenly shaped or the same size. T (almost 3) tore them up and placed them into a pile.
Scrunch up the tissue paper into small buds and put into a container. With the strong card draw a basic heart shape and then cut out. Depending on your child’s ability, you can let them cut out, or you can help cut out. You can also give them the offcuts and let them practice some cutting skills at the same time.
Cover the heart with glue, and then place on the scrunched up tissue paper. We started by placing bits at a time but moved onto pouring the container of scrunched up tissue paper all over the heart which made it easier to cover the heart moving them around.
Once dry, glue the tissue paper heart to the card blank, and give or send to your child’s valentines.
