This craft is perfect for children of all ages, helping children practice basic cutting and fine-motor practice skills.  Before we begin, take a moment and pin this post on your craft board for later!

Benefits of This Paper Heart Chain Craft

Creating this cheerful paper heart garland together offers many benefits for preschool to early elementary kids:

  • Practices fine motor control – cutting, folding, gluing
  • Allows creativity and self-expression through color/shape choices
  • Enhances dexterity and coordination
  • Promotes focus and concentration
  • Provides a tactile learning experience
  • Allows practice of early writing skills with message writing

The process of making this Valentine’s Day decoration also gives you a chance to talk about the meaning of love, kindness, and friendship with your kids.

Supplies for the Paper Heart Chain

What you need: You most likely have all the supplies you need already in your home. If you don’t, a quick run to your local drugstore or office supply store should be able to supply you with all you need. However, I have included affiliate links to Amazon, where you can purchase everything you will need.

How to Make the Paper Heart Chain

What to do:

  1. First, you draw lines about 1 and 1/2 inches apart on each paper.
  2. Next, cut on the lines, creating strips of paper.
  3. Write down a positive affirmation or love note on each heart link (optional).
  4. Once all the strips are cut out, fold each strip in half to create a V.
  5. Next, bring both ends of the strip into the center, forming a heart shape.
  6. Then staple, tape, or glue the ends together, creating a heart.
  7. Next, staple, tape, or glue each heart next to one another. You can interlink the hearts if you wish.
