I thought it would be fun to do some special form drawings for Valentine’s Day!

Valentine's Day form drawing

This is a “mirrored” form.  For grades 1 and up, you draw one half of the mirror and your child draws the other.  Older children can draw both halves.  It’s up to you whether to draw the yellow center line or not.

Form Drawing hearts for Valentine's Day

Concentric hearts….a fun challenge for any age group!

Hearts in a row form drawing for Valentine's Day | Lavender's Blue Homeschool

A Valentine’s running form.  My girls love this one!  I think this would be a lovely border to decorate a Valentine’s card or for designing your own wrapping paper.

If form drawing has ever been stressful at your house, this could be a playful antidote!

If you try these out, I hope you’ll let me know how it goes!  :)
