Valentine’s Day is coming & with it comes the flowers, the chocolates and the cards. My daughter has already started getting excited about making Valentine’s cards for her family & friends. I was excited too because let’s face it, there is nothing sweeter than getting a Valentine from your little one. We love hand & footprint crafts because they make wonderful keepsakes. This adorable Valentine is cute & easy to make.
Hand Print Valentine
Paint your child’s palm and thumb in yellow. Paint black stripes over the yellow paint. Paint the fingers for the wings. I chose light blue for our wings.
Press their hand onto a piece of paper.
Paint in antennae and a stinger.
Add googly eyes & a mouth and draw in wing veins.
Add your message. (I love puns.) Add a heart trail or a few hearts to finish it off.
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us on Facebook as well.
Always love your handprint crafts and this one is indeed totally perfect for Valentine’s Day!! 🙂
What type of paint do you use?
I usually use acrylic paints or tempura. It washes off pretty easily.
