Suggested Reading: One Love by Cedella Marley
Materials: paint, paper, paper towel rolls
First, bend your paper towel rolls ( I cut ours in half so we could use lots of colors) into a heart shape.
Then, have your little one dip the heart “stamp” into the paint.
Let them stamp and stamp away! We used all the sides of the paper towel roll for different color hearts.
The end result: a heart warming masterpiece!
