Kids can create a beautiful garden craft with heart shaped flowers. This is a fun activity to your Valentine theme for preschool or kindergarten.

This activity combines painting and paper cutting to make a garden with a Valentine theme.

The activity supports early learning skills:  fine motor skills (cutting, gluing hearts), math (counting and sorting hearts) and creative (designing the garden).

This eco-friendly paper craft is easy to set up with craft sticks and recycled chair foam. You can substitute solid foam packaging or even modeling clay for the base if chair foam is not available.

The scalloped edge on the flowers adds a dainty touch to the flower petals!

Supplies for a Valentine garden craft


Instructions for Valentine craft

Paint a piece of chair foam for the base to hold the flowers


1. Cut a piece of chair foam to the desired size for the base.

  • Use pinking shears if preferred to make a crinkled edge.

2.  Paint the foam green.

  • We combined blue and yellow paint to make green since we only had a neon green on hand and it didn't seem to suit this craft.
  • Mixing paint colors is another learning opportunity for kids!


Cut paper with scalloped edge scissors to make petals and leaves


3. Cut out green and red heart shapes.

  • Cut the green hearts in half length-wise to make leaves.
  • Cut out the petals and leaves with edger scissors of preferred.

4. Paint craft stick stems.

  • Color them with green markers or crayons if preferred.

6. Make slits in the foam with a craft knife (grownups can do this).

  • You could make snips in the foam with scissors (kids can try this).

7. Insert the flowers.


Why wait for spring to plant flowers? Make a Valentine garden today and enjoy!
