DIY Valentines


A fun Valentines Day STEAM activity for kids.

Make your very own valentines or download our premade valentines.

These spinning little wonders are technically called thaumatropes.  They are optical illusions that have been entertaining people for hundreds of years.  So we are going to make some of our own for Valentine’s Day.

The idea is that you draw part of an image on one side of the paper and part of the image on the other side of the paper.  Then when you spin the paper, it looks like the two images are put together into one.

Follow the directions below to easily make you own.  Or grab a copy of our printables and just cut and add rubber bands.
