valentines day handprint craft (2)


Plan ahead this cute Valentine Craft to do with the kiddos!

Our friend Tori found this fun and easy Valentine’s craft on Scrumdilly-do, that would be super fun to do with the kids.  She simplified it just a bit from the original – we all love an easy project ;)

 I love this fun Valentine’s kids craft, it’s so cute.  I think I may go to Hobby Lobby this week and buy a  blank wrapped canvas for the kiddos to make a hand print tree.  I want to start adding Morgan and Caleb’s artwork to their playroom, this would be a great craft for us to do together.


You will need:

  • Pink paint
  • Red paint
  • Brown paint
  • Paint brush


Step 1: Use the paintbrush to paint the trunk first.

Step 2: Dip your thumbs in the paint, and use 2 thumb prints to create the shape of a heart. Repeat this step until you have enough “leaves” on the tree! Depending on the ages of your children, your “leaves” could be all different sizes.  Even better mom, roll up your sleeves stick your fingers in the paint and add some big heart “leaves”.  You’ll enjoy creating a masterpiece of memories with your little ones.

Thanks to our friend Tori Vest, self-professed Pinterest-lover for this guest post. She’s a super savvy crafting girl, we think she did a fabulous job on this DIY project!
