Teach your preschooler how to draw a heart

Pin It

Do you have a small child with a lot of enthusiasm for Valentine’s Day art, and who wants you to make them hearts over and over again? I had a few here at my house, so I taught them a simple way to draw a heart. All images here were drawn by children between 2 and 5.

Step 1: Draw a big letter “V” at the bottom.
Step 2: Draw a small letter “v” above the first heart, as high as you want your heart.
Step 3: Add letter “C” on each side to join it all together.
Step 4: Colour to your heart’s content. 🙂

    This is fabulous! I actually think my 2.5yo is going to be able to do this! What’s more – she’ll love it! Thanks for sharing! x

    Nice way to explain how to do it. I’ll have to see if my kiddo is interested. He’s been getting a heart stamp at preschool every day, explaining, “because I looooove Mama.” <3

    when I explain it I tell kids to make a “V”, then I say draw 2 hills on top! Works every time!
