Valentine’s Day Craft: Tye Dye Hearts

Hey hey ya’ll! Today I want to share this simple Valentine’s Day craft that I make with my students every year.
My partner teacher shared this idea with me and it’s become a February favorite.
These tye dye hearts are so simple to make and the kids love them. All you need are some coffee filters, bingo daubers, yarn, and you’re all set!

Here’s what you need to make this simple Valentine’s Day craft:
1. large coffee filters
3. paper plate/paper towel
4. hole punch
5. yarn
6. squirt bottle of water
First, you take large coffee filters and cut them into a heart shape. To do this, you simply fold them in half and cut. You can do several at a time and it only takes a minute or so.

Then, using the bingo markers, have the kids dab as many dots as they want all over the filter. Do this over a paper plate or a paper towel because the markers will seep through.

Then, have them lightly spray water all of the filter. They will see the colors begin to stream together.
