Fantastic Valentine's Day gift for those your kiddos love

By Erika Veduccio February 3, 2018
Create Valentine’s wall art using your kids handprints or foot prints. This activity is entertaining for both boys and girls and is a great craft for a variety of ages.

What you will need:
  • 11 x 14 canvas 
  • Acrylic paint 
  • Paintbrushes
  • Paperplates
  • Trashbags
What you will do:
  1. Cover your kitchen table or hard surface with a trash bag.
  2. Select your favorite paint color. Squirt onto a paper plate.
  3. Using a paint brush, paint the palm of your child’s hand.
  4. Place the painted hand on the top right of the canvas. Press down all parts of the hand.  
  5. Lift hand in one swift motion.
  6. Finish by painting L, V and E in your favorite font. We chose a whimsical handwriting.
Find a place to display and enjoy your masterpiece!

Note: This technique could easily be applied to cards that you send to family and friends by using card stock as your surface or use fabric and create a fun pillow or tote bag!
