Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and it’s a great time to get crafty with the little ones.
Using a few basic materials and a small handprint, your little one can create a masterpiece craft this Valentine’s Day.
Step 1 –
Print out a template of their favorite animal and have them put their hand in washable paint.
Step 2 –
Then apply their hand on the template to create an outline of the animal.
*Quick tip – if you’re making the “Hogs & Kisses” printable, do not paint your little one’s thumb before printing their handprint. We accidentally painted her whole hand and since piggies do not have 5 legs, we had to make sure we didn’t imprint her painted thumb as well.
Step 3 –
Once dry, help them complete their craft by gluing additional pieces to the animal such as a fin for the fish or hooves for the pigs!
Step 4 –
Don’t forget to have them sign (and date) the card for an adorable Valentine’s Day keepsake.
I absolutely love that there are different animal choices so each child can pick their own unique valentine.
