Mexican Aluminum Hearts for Valentines Day

Now this was a cool Valentines Day Workshop. We made Mexican Aluminum Hearts! Using lasagna pans from the Dollar Tree (my favorite place for crafts) I cut out hearts and wings. First the kids carved into their hearts with a wooden skewer. Then they colored them in using Sharpees. Gorgeous! They even put adhesive mirrors in the center. Finally they decorated them with shiny stickers, sequins and glitter glue. Here are some photos…

Mexican Tin Heart Mirrors: Valentines Workshop!

In the spirit of Valentines Day, we will be making beautiful Mexican Tin Heart Mirrors (aka. hojalata)! This is quite a unique project and a rare opportunity for kids to learn about how to make this special folk art that is rich in Mexican cultural tradition. Personally, I happen to LOVE the way this craft looks and you and your kids will too!

I’m throwing out a day and time here that works for me and I am hoping that the people who would like to participate are available. Let me know if it does. Ages 4-10 yrs. As usual, snacks provided.
