Three Hands One Heart Handprint Craft - a sweet gift for the family - mom, dad & child

*This post has been updated since the original post*

One of my favorite kinds of kid’s crafts are any that have to do with there little hands or feet. I love hand prints & tracings. My daughter and I have been dabbling with tracing a lot lately. She loves trying to trace her hand. It is adorable,really. She will trace hers & then say “Mama, trace hand toooo?” Absolutely, baby!
Their sweet little hands make such wonderful keepsake art. It will be such an “awwwwww” inducing memory to look back on in the future. Here is a Valentines inspired craft featuring the whole family’s hands.

What you will need:

Construction or scrapbook paper

Glue stick



Letter stencils

Tracings of your hands


Place your hands (mommy, daddy, baby) on a piece of construction paper.


Outline each hand.


Cut around the outlines of each of your hands.


Place hands in an overlapping pattern to form a heart in the middle.


Using a glue stick, glue them into position over a contrasting color.


Flip over & cut any excess to the contrast paper so that only the heart shape shows.


Glue the hands & heart to another piece of contrasting paper.


Use a stencil to trace out your saying.


Let the marker dry & glue dry.

Place your new creation in a frame.


We have since made a new family heart using our family hand prints instead of the cut-outs.

  1. I’m with you, I love incorporating the hands and feet into crafts. They can be awesome keepsakes. A few years go we made my mother in law a stepping stone for her garden and cemented the handprints of both my sons on the stone. I think it will be just awesome to look back on years from now and see how small they were.

  2. This is really cute! I made something similar in November with my son, but never blogged about it. I love yours. Pinned on my board of homeschooling ideas. Thanks for sharing!
