Watercolour hearts encourage maths, hand and eye coordination skills in cutting out; art skills in painting and Literacy skill in writing.

Cut out the heart shapes from a4 White paper, and ask the child to think of ‘5 things they love’.  You can help them to choose a topic such as family, friends, animals, food, places, toys etc.

With black biro they drew and wrote their thoughts and then did a simple colour wash (one of mine wanted to do felt tip) .
