Q-tip Heart Tracing – Snowy Valentine

Q-tip Heart Tracing


We read Snowy Valentine by David Petersen. I love this book because it points out that we don’t have to give complex gifts to someone we love. You can do simple gifts. After the book was read we did q-tip heart tracing.

What you need: Heart Tracing from the Valentines Pack part 3, q-tips and paints: pink, red and purple.

  1. What a fantastic fine motor skills activity! I’m going to break this one out the next time I have the younger daycare kids.

  2. This is such a great way to work on fine motor skills.

    I love using Q-tips. Children really have to concentrate when creating their patterns/tracing etc and it’s almost impossible to hold in a palmer grip :). I love your girls pictures 🙂
