We love doing themed crafts with our groups here at ECDA for every special occasion throughout the year! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we have lots of Valentine’s Day themed crafts coming up for the children in our weekly groups.

We would like to share one of our upcoming craft plans with you. We will be making Tie Dye Hearts. This activity only needs a few supplies and is a lot of fun! You can showcase them on the walls, make other crafts with them, and they look adorable hanging in windows.

What you’ll need:

Coffee Filters

Do-A-Dot Markers


To start, cut a coffee filter in the shape of a heart (works best when folded in half and a half heart shape is cut). For the tie dye effect, fold the coffe filter 2-3 times into a triangular shape. Use the do-a-dot markers to create unique patterns. You can leave the heart shape unfolded and create dotted designs.
