Tye Dye Hearts: An Easy Valentine’s Day Art Project
Hey hey ya’ll! It’s *almost* February and you know what that means! Its Weekend Warrior time. This month my WW gals and I are bringing you some ideas you can use for Valentine’s Day.
If you are anything like me, you have a love hate relationship with this holiday. I think we can all relate that sugar highs are not a teachers favorite thing but it a fun time for the kids so that makes it all worth it.
I’m doing a little throwback post to one of my favorite Valentine activities. I originally posted this idea 2 years ago but wanted to reshare it. I learned this trick from my old partner teacher.We make these “easy peasy” Valentine crafts every year and they are so much fun.
Here’s what you need:
1. large coffee filters
2. bingo markers (you can get them at hobby lobby. I’ve even bought some from Dollar Tree recently.)
3. paper plate/paper towel
6.squirt bottle of water
First you take large coffee filters and cut them into a heart shape.
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.
Let it dry.
Punch a hole at the top and tie with yarn. Hang and enjoy!
There you have it. Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy right?!?

KABOOM! is the one game that I always say every teacher needs in their classroom. It is so versatile and can be used with anything. This is my students absolute favorite game to play and they never get tired of it. I have games made for all subject areas. Read all about this class favorite! ---> bit.ly/KABOOMClassroomGame...

One year, we read a story about a little girl who flew around the world and saw many different things, one of which was the Statue of Liberty. When the students were asked to name something she saw on her journey, a little boy said the Spatula Delivery! Too cute!
