Marbled hearts to celebrate Valentine's Day



Since the first time that I saw Merycherry colorful hearts, I wanted to integrate them to one of my art classes. 

I've done this for some time now and the kids LOVE the project!

With Valentine's Day approaching, here is a new opportunity to make and spread hearts for people of all ages!

Supplies needed

(affiliate links provided for your convenience):

 Directions:

Pick three colors of clay. 
If you are uncertain how to mix the colors, 
you can use the color wheel to help you!



To mix the colors, I used a "technique" that I use since I was a kid: the snake!  Roll each color out about 4 inches long. Twist each color together. Fold and then twist again until the colors are blended the way you want.



Form a ball with the clay. Use a wooden rolling pin 
to flatten the clay then use the cookie cutter to make your hearts.



In case you want to make a necklace with them, 
use a stick to make a hole on the top of the heart before you bake the clay!

Bake them for 15 minutes and you'll have a 
beautiful collection of hearts to make a necklace (or a keychain or a charm or whatever you want), hand them out to friends or leave them around as a piece of art + kindness abandonment. You can also add a positive word on each one of them and make them even more special.
