Lesson Plan Title : Candy-Colored Picture

Objective: The student will be able to create a picture using traditional Valentine's Day candies.


Candy conversation hearts



Protective sealant


Have students create a picture made entirely of candy conversation hearts. They can glue them to the paper upside down so the wording does not show. Suggestions for pictures could include traditional Valentine's Day symbols, the front of a Valentine's Day card, and special messages. When the students finish their pictures, spray them with a protective sealant.

Wrap Up:

This activity can also be completed using cinnamon hearts on a black background or against white rice.
