Valentines Craft Handprints Heart Card Kids Crafts

Here is a sweet and easy valentines craft for you to make today with your kids. Kids crafts using their handprints are great keepsake projects.

Valentines Craft

Construction paper or card stock
Glue
Scissors
Pencil, pen, or marker
Stickers, markers, crayons, glitter (for optional decorating)

Handprints Heart Card

1. Fold a piece of paper width-wise (hamburger fold, not hotdog!). 
2. With the tip of your thumb aligned with the folded edge, trace your hand. 
3. Cut out your handprint, making sure both layers get cut and stay connected in the thumb area. Don't cut out the space between the pointer finger and the thumb yet!
4. Cut out the paper in the space between the pointer finger and the thumb. It took us till our third one, the red one, to figure out that we should just cut a heart shape there, instead of trying to follow the traced lines. It made a much better heart shape that way!
5. If you want, decorate your handprint card with stickers, glitter, markers, or crayons!

This is super cute! I'd love it of you'd link this on Friday at Family Fun Friday at: http://happyandblessedhome.com/category/family-fun/ I post and share with a MOPS group and FB group of 300+ women and I think they would really like this.
Grandpa & Grandma would love valentine's like this!
Thanks so much!

Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm going to start my own blog in
the near future but I'm having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
