Objective: Students will make hearts by tearing pieces of paper and gluing them into a heart shape.
This project is part of a collection!
What kind of paper you use and what colors are completely up to you. You can use construction paper, tear paper out of magazines, or use scrap paper from previous projects.
Have students tear pieces of paper and glue them down using a glue stick to create hearts.
Warning—this station takes longer than the others (even though it’s such a simple idea).
I recommend giving students small pieces of paper to tear, or they will spend a lot of time tearing. If you are going to use this for a center then when you rotate students from one center to another, ask them to leave any pieces they have already torn for the next group to use.
The fewer instructions you give here, the better—students can do all the creative thinking!
Thanks for exploring my torn paper heart idea. I’d love to see what you create if you decide to do this project. Please tag me @artwithjennyk on your favorite social media channels so I can see what you do with this idea!
