Valentine's Day Craft for Kids: Heart Magnets

By: The Editors of FaveCrafts.com

Try this fun Valentine's craft project to create salt dough heart magnets that are fun for both kids and adults to decorate.

Materials:

  • Salt Dough (instructions here)
  • Rolling pin
  • Flour
  • Heart Shaped Cookie cutters
  • Acrylic Paint (colors of your choice)
  • Paintbrush
  • Flat baking sheet
  • Glue
  • Small magnets

Steps:

  1. Make salt dough according to instructions.
     
  2. Roll salt dough out on a lightly floured surface to about 1/4" thick.
     
  3. Use cookie cutters to cut hearts out of dough.
     
  4. Place dough hearts on an ungreased baking sheet in a 250 degree oven for about 2 hours.
     
  5. Remove from oven and cool completely.
     
  6. Use acrylic paints to decorate hearts as you desire. A good technique for writing words is using a toothpick dipped in a small bit of bright paint, like yellow or white.
     
  7. Glue magnets to the back of the hearts.

Enjoy!
