Fingerprints and smudges all over the cabinets, windows and walls are a regular part of family life. We’re told that we will even miss them when they’re gone! So here is a project to preserve your little one’s ﬁngerprints. It’s a Valentine craft that would be so easy to mail, and sure to be one you and your loved ones will treasure!
I just realized that we never shared the kids craft project we created for Raising Arizona Kids magazine this month. I’m glad I remembered because this one is so cute and simple it would be a total shame to miss.
I’m also running behind on decorating my Valentine’s mantle — this year is certainly off to a crazy start and how could February be nearly half way over already? So is it too late to decorate for Valentines or still worth it?? Perhaps Miss Modette and I will do some fingerpainting to make this Heart Art only in pink to coordinate with our Fuchsia and Navy Valentines Printable Decor. I have all those all printed and ready to string and hang — if I get it done I’ll be sure to post a pic on Instagram…. and if you’ve got yours up post a pic and tag @PagingSupermom, deal?
TO MAKE: Download our free printable Heart Frame Mat templates. Let the child ﬁngerpaint a picture while an adult cuts a heart out of the center of a piece of white cardstock. After the ﬁngerpainted masterpiece has dried, place it behind the cardstock cutout and frame as desired. This project is a great gift to send off to grandparents and other valentines.
