How to Make a Valentine Card Using Heart Fingerprints

What you need:

  • white cardboard
  • red and pink non-toxic paint or ink pad (or other)

Step-by-step instructions

Start with white cardstock and fold it in half lengthwise to make the card base.

Step 1

You can let your child paint his thumb with a brush or prepare paint for him to dip his finger in.

Step 2

Stamp the fingerprint from the top left part of the card.

Step 3

Fill the card with fingerprints one color, leaving enough space between them to create unique hearts with a second coat of paint.

Step 4

Let your child switch to another type of paint. They can use the same thumb or switch to the other hand.

Step 5

Create reverse fingerprints with pink prints, which when combined will form tiny hearts.

Step 6

Aren’t the hearts adorable?

Step 7

All has been done!

Give your masterpiece time to dry, then write a card and ask the kids to write a sweet message with markers or pens.
