Printmaking Hearts for Valentine's Day

A few weeks ago, I was rummaging through the art room closet and found a ton of hearts with a sticky back.  It occurred to me that Valentine's Day was coming up, so I decided to use them for the project below.  The project was for 4th grade.  It was total chaos, but we did manage to get the project done in one class period.   

Kids can get up to 5 hearts from the basket.

Kids pull the sticky off the back of the heart and glue on a 5" x 5" piece of paper.

Kids used the white ink first, then the black.
When using white ink, they made their print on black paper.
When using black ink, they made their print on white paper.

Last thing, they glued the black and white paper to the pink paper.

Here are the leftover stamps.  A big stack of Heart Attack-ack-ack-ack!

Here's Seth Avett (The Avett Brothers from Mount Pleasant, NC) singing, Billy Joel's "Movin' Out" with the echoing words Heart Attack-ack-ack-ack.
