Let your child show the love with this adorable and fun button craft just for Valentine’s Day. With just a little tiny bit of adult involvement – kids can create this beautiful masterpiece for the special person in their life.
Canvas Heart Button Craft!
The canvas Heart Button Craft is another great Valentine’s Day toddler craft. We made these for the Sunday School Teachers and they loved them. It’s easy for the kid’s to place the buttons on canvas once you have spread out the glue and drew the outline. You can make them big or small or even a different design if you want.
You will need red, pink and white buttons. I purchased them at Michaels and even after making three canvases we still had some left over for next time. They are only $2.50 per pack and you can use whatever color you like. The canvas that I used are 8 x 8 and come in a pack of 12 on Amazon. These are great to have on hand for all types of projects. I used good old Elmer’s glue but you might even be able to use a glue stick if you’d like.
You can see that the glue is still wet in the picture below but it dried clear overnight.
I started by drawing the heart shape with the glue on the canvas.
Then I did the outline with the buttons and the kids did the center.
We let it dry overnight and it was ready to hand to the Sunday School Teachers.
Another easy peasy toddler craft and it gives them hand and eye coordination.
Just A Reminder
While this is a great craft – event for toddlers we do want to remind you to keep an eye on kids when they are doing this project! The buttons can pose a choking hazard – so it is important that little kids are in the presence of the adult while creating their button heart!
