Styrofoam Printmaking for Valentine's Day!

Updated: Feb 5, 2020

Valentine's Day is right around the corner, that means it's time for Valentine's themed art projects. Kids both young and old love printmaking. I've done this project with high school kids, (minus the Valentine's theme) and it was always one of their favorite projects. If you are looking for a project to do in your classroom, your child's classroom, or just at home with your kids, read on.


This activity is also a great way to make homemade valentine cards. With one print you can make cards for a whole class full of kids! Just fold a piece of paper in half and create a small print that can be put on the outside.



Warning, some supplies for this project are an investment, but please don't let that scare you off, because printmaking is going to be one of your students/kids favorite projects this year. You may be able to substitute cheaper paint for printmaking paint and brushes for brayers, but it won't look as good. Below is what I recommend.


Supplies: Brayers, printmaking ink,
