Check out the adorable small sized heart shape template pages I created below! They’re perfect for so many projects and activities for kids and moms too! These small heart pages are a great way to practice shape recognition with preschoolers and practice tracing skills with early learners.
Tracing activities are good for building pen control and practicing good pencil grip with preschoolers and kindergartners. It’s an important pre-writing step too! Not to mention all the fine motor practice you can squeeze in just by coloring these hearts. Fine motor skills are crucial for building the muscles needed for preschoolers to write later.
These small heart outline templates aren’t just great for coloring with kids, they’re also a great base stencil for tons of Valentine projects. Imagine all the cute gift tags and other Valentine’s Day decorations you could make with these. The possibilities are endless!
Want to know how I’m planning to use them? I’m going to print lots of small heart cut-outs and write all the cute things I love about my kids in them. Cute sayings like “you have the best giggle!” and “You give great hugs!” Then, I’m going to tape them all over their bedroom doors for Valentine’s Day! I think we will all enjoy reading them together and sharing the love with one another.
