We made Valentine cards in the spirit of Jim Dine. I got these ideas from Art Projects For Kids which is a great site!!!! She explains it better than I also.

Alex liked this one:

We took a piece of cardboard (cereal box) and covered one side with glue. We put a piece of aluminum foil on it, shiny side up. Alex drew a heart and then drew 3-4 lines to separate. He used permanent markers to color each section.
This one was not as fun for him. I think it turned out nice though.

Color hearts with crayon. Choose one water color for background. Dry then paint rubber cement over, not over the whole thing just pieces here and there. Then choose a color that contrasts the first and paint over the whole thing. The rubber cement was will protect the original color. He did like that part. He spent some time drawing Doctor Octopus and then painting over him with rubber cement to preserve the drawing. Anyway, after that is dry, outline the hearts with oil pastels to make them stand out. I think it would have looked nicer if the hearts were bigger.
