When we last visited a children’s museum, they had a detective exhibit. Aiden really liked it. He especially liked creating a bioglyph where different parts of a face drawing represent different things about you. You could set up a secret meeting and send the bioglyph so the person you were meeting would know what you looked like.

I thought it would be fun to create a valentine themed glyph. It’s a great activity for following directions plus you end up with a cool piece of art.

Follow the directions for filling in sections of the heart. The heart has 9 sections so I created 9 questions. Aiden helped create the questions and the answer choices. I love his animals. Although my favorite did not make the list.

I worked on a heart as Aiden worked on his. I read the directions and we filled in the sections. Here’s the heart that represents me.

Aiden wanted me to draw the hearts and stars for him. He colored them in.

For younger kids, you could have pre-cut shapes and glue them on or you could use stickers.

Aiden and I made a heart for Lily, too. He answered the questions and I colored.

Aiden also really enjoyed coloring the heart on his own.
