Looking for a great Valentine’s Day kid’s craft? My newest favorite piece of art in our home is this “LOVE” canvas that Kate recently painted!
When it’s the middle of winter and your five year old is feeling stir crazy, saying, “Should we get out the paints?” is sure to put a smile on his or her face! Kate usually paints on paper, but getting to paint this artwork on an actual canvas made this project feel extra special!
I resisted the urge to micromanage, and let her paint her canvas however she wanted. As you can see, she took this Very Seriously:
…until the song “In Summer” from the Frozen movie came on our iTunes and she had to sing along!
Check out my Valentine’s Day Kid’s Craft post on Homes.com’s new blog Home for the Holidays for step by step instructions on how to recreate this DIY canvas artwork with your little one – including my tips for how to speed up drying time, and how to make the end result look like the canvas artwork you see in stores!
