In this Valentines Day craft we’ll show you how to make adorable heart stones that will melt everyone’s hearts. Kids Activities Blog hopes you will have a wonderful Valentine’s Day full of love.
Let’s carpe diem this Valentine’s Day! Let’s make it more than a romantic holiday for couples.
Valentine’s Day is more than a holiday for Lovers.
It’s a time to share love with Others!
We can do this through various kindness projects like making something for your neighbor, volunteering somewhere or the Heart Attack fun activity. Today I want to share with you this activity that our family had lots of fun doing–the “Share the Love Project.” Here’s all you need to make this cute Valentines Heart Stone Craft:
VALENTINES HEART STONE CRAFT
- several smooth rocks (river stone works great)
- acrylic paint
- foam brushes and cotton swabs
Start by collecting smooth rocks or you can also purchase them from a craft or home improvement store. If using rocks you collected, then make sure they are clean and dry before you paint on them. I had an old grocery bag full of river rock from a long ago craft project that I gave my kids.
Next prepare your area for painting. Paint the base and once that has dried turn the rock over and paint the other side. Depending on your paint, you may need to put a second coat on.
Then, paint hearts on the rocks in a contrasting color.
Lastly, add your message to the back. We wanted the people that found the rocks to know that God loves them. So that was our message, but feel free to add whatever you want.
HERE’S THE FUN PART!
Share the love!
Go to a park, the mall, grocery store, library, public bathrooms, hospital waiting room… and place the rock in a place that is visible. You can put it anywhere on the floor, on a shelf, by a vending machine… If you are more comfortable, leave the heart stones at places where you are familiar with the people. You can share it with family members, at church or even at school.
Stop by and let us know on our Facebook page what kind of response you received when someone spotted theirs.
Valentine’s Day is a time to share the love with friends and family. We know you’ll love making these heart stones with your kids. We have some more inspiring kids activities for you to consider:
