Valentine’s Day Kids Handprint and Footprint Craft for hanging on your walls. I love displaying my girl’s arts and crafts around our home, but my favorite ones to display are the ones with their handprints or footprints.
Valentine’s Day Kids Handprint and Footprint Craft

I love creating crafts with my girls. I can see how much they have grown.

Materials Needed For Valentines Day Canva Craft
- White canvas
- Pink, red, and white acrylic paint
- Little hands and feet
How To Make Valentine’s Day Kid’s Handprint and Footprint Craft
- The first thing I had my girls do was paint their white canvases any color they wanted. As you can see, they both decided on pink.
- Once they had painted the entire canvas, we let them dry overnight.
- Using red paint, I first added the girl’s handprint to the upper right-hand corner of the canvas. (I apologize for the lack of pictures, it was a bit difficult with little painted hands and our white furniture)
- I then painted their feet and printed them on the canvas in a “V” shape form.
Tip: To keep from paint spreading all over your home, keep a box of baby wipes nearby. This will help with cleaning your kid’s feet and hands after painting.
- Using a thin brush and red paint, I helped the girls write the letters L and E to complete the word LOVE on their canvas. You could also use their hands as well to form both letters. This would work better with older kids as they sit a bit still than the younger ones.
- The girls also wanted to add a small little heart to their handprints. So using white paint, we added a small heart at the bottom of their red handprint. I think it turned out cute!
- Hang up in your home and enjoy!
These would also make the best Valentine’s Day gift for grandparents and even daddy or mommy’s office!

I love this! I would like to do this with my three year olds that I teach. Would you recommend 8×10 or 11×14 for the canvas size?
I personally would go bigger, so that it gives you more room 🙂 I really want to re-do them larger in two different colors and hang them in my girls room.
