Monoprint Heart Cards for Kids to Make

Sharing is caring!

I encourage my preschooler to use all sorts of materials in his painting projects. Painting paper plates or sticks and other nature materials is already something he does on a regular basis. One day I gave him a Q-tip to use instead of a brush. When he was done we experimented with monoprinting. Have you ever tried it? It’s a really fascinating activity. One for all ages. With Mother’s Day around the corner we thought of creating a couple of monoprint heart cards and played with several colors.
