- Use the template to trace a heart onto your white paper.
- Carefully cut out the heart. It is a symmetrical shape.
- Use the sponges and different colours of paint to completely cover your heart. While you are working think about these questions:
- What painting tool do you like to use? Why?
- Do the sponges look different when you stamp them with the paint?
- What shapes do you see?
- Look at the different shapes. Why do you think new shapes are created when 2 colours mix on your paper?
- Fold a 20 cm x 25 cm (8" x 10") piece of construction paper in half lengthwise (hot dog fold).
- Place your hand and arm up to your elbow on the paper and trace it with a pencil.
- Keep the paper folded and carefully cut around the outline of your hand and arm. You will get 2 copies by keeping the paper folded.
- Glue a small head shot picture 6 cm x 6 cm (2.5" x 2.5") of yourself in the middle of the heart.
- Use a black fine tip marker to write Guess how much I love you . . . under the picture.
- Glue some decorative items onto the heart to make it extra special.
- Place the painted heart face down on the table.
- Glue both arms onto the back of the heart so they are a mirror image of each other.
- Make sure the thumbs are facing up and they are directly opposite each other.
- Look carefully at your completed artwork.
- How do you know that it is a symmetrical design?
- Give your creation to someone you love!
