Nursery + Preschool Valentine Keepsake: Handprint Hearts
Paint children’s palms and fingers, one hand at a time. Then press the entire hand to the paper, fingers together, and palms slightly at an angle on the page. Wash that hand while the paint has time to dry. Use the opposite color and hand to press on the other side of the first handprint, forming a heart shape.
After the prints dry, write at the top, “You will always have my heart! Happy Valentine’s Day!” and then write the child’s name. Let little ones give their special gift to whomever they choose.
