Preschool Craft: Valentine Heart Placemat

Preschoolers can make this Valentine Heart Placemat for someone special to celebrate Valentine’s Day.


You’ll need:

  • 11×17 white construction paper,
  • red tempera paint,
  • plastic bowls,
  • baking potatoes,
  • a knife,
  • glue,
  • scissors,
  • and a photo of each child.

Preschool Craft: Valentine Heart Placemat

Before class, slice potatoes in half and cut a heart shape into the potato for stamping. Then have children dip the potato in red paint and stamp heart shapes on construction paper. Help preschoolers cut their photos into heart shapes and glue them to the placemats. Laminate the placemats for durability.

Read aloud John 13:34. Remind preschoolers that God wants us to love each other, just as he loves us. Tell preschoolers to give the placemat to someone as a way to say, “I love you.”
