today my kids were home from school because of the snow, so I was thinking at some activities to do and then I thought: oh this week-end is gonna be valentine’s day! Let’s make some nail polish painted paper’s hearts!
My kids had a lot of fun and you can use your old nail polish or your host girl ones.
I used a heart shape (the one you use to make cookies) and I trace the border on thick white construction paper. After I cut all of them, I made like 30 hearts.
The first thing i did was covering the table with old newspapers and then I gave each kid an old plastic container with a little bit of water.
We opened all the nail polish (the liquider work better), then we choose some colors and we put just a couple of drops of each color in the water.
After we dipped the heart in the water and we immediately took it out. Now the heart has a marvelous marble draw on it!
We repeated the same process with all the hearts, changing the water once in a while. We also used a stick, to remove the nail polish leftovers from the water.
My kids’ hands were very dirty at the end, so if you prefer, you can make them wear plastic gloves.
