Valentine's Day Banner - two banners hanging against wallI volunteer at a daycare for mentally challenged individuals and plan simple art projects with inexpensive supplies to make together. I thought I'd share them since they can be used in classrooms or even at home!


Total Time: 2 hours


Valentine's Day Banner - supplies


  1. I first cut the publications in half. I do this because it easily makes 7 or 8 (according to how many pages in the publication) banners easily since I do this project for 50 patients.
  2. Valentine's Day Banner - paper publications
    Valentine's Day Banner - cut the publications in half
  3. I cut a V out of the bottom section. I cut them all together so it goes quickly!
  4. Valentine's Day Banner - cut a V from the bottom of the rectangle

  5. Now, I remove the staple in the center of the publications and separate the pages so there are one for each student.
  6. Valentine's Day Banner - if using multi page publications remove staple in middle to separate pages

  7. Next I fold some colored paper in half, then in half again to create 4 hearts when I cut it out.
  8. Valentine's Day Banner - fold colored paper in half
    Valentine's Day Banner - fold in half again so that you can cut out 4 hearts at one time
  9. I cut the heart out freehand but you could trace or sketch a heart on the top quarter page and follow that for all four hearts. If you students are capable, you could trace a heart and have them cut them out.

  11. Next, they use their glue stick and glue the heart to the banner sheet.
  12. Valentine's Day Banner - glue heart to banner page
  13. This is where you can let them draw and write their name on the heart. We also handed out the little hearts and let them stick them on.
  14. Valentine's Day Banner - heart glued onto banner
    Valentine's Day Banner - write name or message and here you can add smaller hearts
  15. We will string the cord along the wall and simply slip the banner onto the cord since it is open on the bottom. We will also tie some pretty yarn or even crepe paper in between each name and space them out.
  16. Valentine's Day Banner - banner pieces can be hung on string, yarn, or cord

  17. It will be fun for them to look for their own names and see their artwork hanging.
  18. I think I will have each person decorate two of these banners and string a smaller cord on the second banner for them to bring home as a door hanger for their home. Cute, personal, inexpensive and easy!
