Kids' Valentine Wreath

Here is a fun and easy Valentine Day wreath to make with your students:
Mix water and water color paint in a shallow dish (wide enough to fit coffee filters).  Have students dip the coffee filters into the mixture and quickly take out (this creates an ombre effect).
Paint the edges of the coffee filters with red paint. This is a great way to work on motor skills and motivation.
Cut out a heart shape from a cardboard box.  Older grade levels will be able to do this step, but I had to do it for my little learners. Use a hole puncher to put tissue in to create carnation flowers.
