Handprint Valentines cards – a cute and easy Valentine’s craft:
We have made so many easy and adorable Valentines crafts this year here in my home daycare, and today, we made our final heart-craft of the season. We made these cute, little Hand Hearts today for the hooligans to take home to their parents tonight.
We’ve made these before, I don’t make a habit of repeating the same crafts year after year, these are really sweet, and most of the kids here today weren’t with us last year when we made them.
Making our Handprint Valentines Cards
I poured 2 colours of paint in a tray, and we used a sponge brush to paint the Hooligans’ hands.
Then they made prints onto cream coloured paper.
Once dry, I cut around the prints in a heart shape, and then again with some “lacy” scissors and red card stock.
It was good, messy fun, and when we were finished washing up, we had some great pink water to pour into spray bottles, and take outside!
Happy Valentine’s Day!!
