I love displaying my girl’s arts and crafts around our home, but my favorite crafts to display are the ones that have their handprint or footprints on them. You will love these Valentine’s Day Kids Handprint and Footprint Craft hanging on your walls.
Valentine’s Day Kids Handprint and Footprint Craft
Not only will this Valentine’s Day craft become one of your favorite paintings, but it will look incredible in your home. I love creating crafts with my girls that I can see how much they have grown. Not only are these canvas kids crafts perfect to hang, but they make the cutest Valentine’s Day gift for grandparents.
- White canvas
- Pink, red, and white acrylic paint
- Little hands and feet
- 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 over night.
- Using red paint I first added the girls 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 near by. This will help with cleaning your kids feet and hands after paint.
- Using a thin brush and red paint I helped the girls each write the letter L and letter 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 tend to sit a bit still than the younger ones.
- The girls also wanted to add a small little heart to their handprint. So using white paint we added a small heart at the bottom of their red handprint. I think it turned out really 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!
