Heart Shaped Potato Prints 
Cut a large potato in half. You will need a heart shaped cookie cutter that will fit on the potato half. Press the cookie cutter into the flat side of the potato. Then, using a knife, cut the potato around the outside of the cookie cutter, leaving a heart shaped potato stamp. Supply the children with the potato stamps, different colored paints, and paper. Have the children dip the potatoes in the paint and press them firmly onto the paper. If the potatoes are not cut evenly the shapes will not appear clearly.

  • use a black marker or black paint
Cookie Cutter Art: 
Obtain a cookie cutter that is shaped like a "h" or a shape that begins with the letter "h", i.e. hand or horse. Have the children dip the cookie cutter in a shallow container of paint, then press onto a piece of paper to make prints.

Contact Paper Art
You will need a picture of an object that begins with the letter "h". A reverse image is needed if the picture can be backwards. Place the image on the table and place a piece of contact paper, sticky side up over the image. Supply the children with scraps of construction paper to tissue paper. Children use the scraps to create the image on the contact paper.

Headbands:
Have the children cut out two strips of paper that when connected will fit around their head. Allow the children to decorate the paper with markers, crayons, paint, glitter or whatever you have on hand. Connect the strips with glue or tape, (staples will catch the child's hair).

"H" Place Mats
Have children cut items out of a magazine that begin with the letter "h" to glue onto a piece of paper. Children glue the items onto their paper. When the glue is dry an adult should laminate the papers for use as a place mat at lunch or snack.

  • Children can cut out the letter "H" from magazines, catalogs and newspapers.
  • Simpler: an adult can cut out shapes that begin with "h" or upper and lower case "h" letters for the children to glue onto the paper.

Hand Turkey
Paint the palm of your child's hand brown, as well as their thumb. Then paint each of their fingers a different bright color such red or blue. Have the child press their hand onto a piece of white paper. For older children, let them draw on feet and characteristics such as eyes and nose. The thumb represents the turkeys neck and the palm the body.

Hexagon Marble Painting
First you need a large plastic container with a lid. (I used a shallow peanut butter container.) Next cut out paper hexagon that will fit in the lid of the container. Place a few drops of paint into the container with a few marbles (be sure to observe carefully as marbles are a choking hazard) then place a very small amount of paint on the lid and pre-cut paper on the paint. (I use the paint to make the paper stick to the lid.) Place the lid on the container, flip and have the children shake. When finished, remove paper and allow to dry, and place a clean piece of paper in the lid for the next child.
