Help babies and toddlers create this heartwarming keepsake for
moms on Mother's Day or dads on Father's Day.
You'll need washable paints, large paintbrushes, diaper wipes,
construction paper, markers, and warm soapy water.
Use brushes to paint the palms of little ones' hands. Guide
their hands to leave an imprint on the paper that forms a heart.
Make their thumbs touch to shape the top of the heart and their
pointer fingers touch to shape the bottom of the heart.
When the paint dries, have volunteers write at the top of the
page, "[Mommy or Daddy], thank you for giving me your heart!" Happy
[Mother's or Father's] Day!"
