This was a great Valentine’s project for 1st and 2nd grade. I found the following picture on the Artsonia website http://www.artsonia.com/museum/aotw/winners.asp?set=77 This project allowed the students to practice intricate cutting skills and reinforce what they already know about symmetry.
They drew a heart on construction paper and then cut out small shapes around the edge of the heart. The heart and the small shapes were glued on to white paper. The students were careful to place their cut out shapes in a symmetrical fashion.
