A great way to get creative this Valentine’s day with the kids is to do this creating unique and fun handprint and footprint art activity. Not only are these activities fun, but they also make for a wonderful keepsake that can be cherished forever. So let’s get creative and start making some masterpieces!
Valentine’s Day Handprint Art
Making handprint art is a fun activity that kids are sure to enjoy. All you need is a few items from around the house including paint, your printable and your child’s hand. Before you begin, cover your workspace with newspaper or an old sheet for easy clean up. Now it’s time to get started!
Have your “handprinted” printables ready for use. Dip your littles hands into the paint color that matches the printables you will be using. Each printable makes up a image with the hand.
After the prints have dried, you can glue them onto another piece of card stock paper of your choice for more sturdiness. To finish off your masterpiece, have your kids draw Valentine hearts or write sweet messages on their artwork on the front or back.
Valentine’s Day Footprint Art
Another way to create fun Valentine’s day art cards is by using everyone’s footprints! It may sound a bit messy but trust us – it will be worth it in the end! Start by laying down newspapers on the floor or use a plastic tablecloth if you prefer. Once again, grab your printable art and your washable paint in different colors if desired and have your children dip their feet into the paint. Then carefully have them step onto the paper where the “foot marker” is. Once all of the prints have been made, let them dry for about 30 minutes before adding any decorations such as hearts or messages alongside each foot print.
Whether in the classroom or at home, you’ll have a thoughtful gift that parents and family members will cherish. You are welcome to print out as many times as you need right from home or your nearest print shop! For personal use only
