Here is a super cute and easy heart shaped Valentine’s Day Card to make with your kids. You should already have all of the supplies at home. This is also a great project to do with elementary and preschool kids in class as a Valentine’s Day project. We just did this project with my son’s preschool class (ages 3-4). These heart shaped cards turned out really nice and it is something that parents can add to their kid’s scrapbook. It also makes a great gift for grandparents, aunts & uncles.

Things you will need:

  • Red or Pink Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • White Paper
  • Red or Pink Paper
  • Red or Pink Glitter
  • Scissors
  • Glue or Tape

How to Make These Heart Shaped Handprints:

Step 1: Keep the palms of the hands facing upwards.

  Step 2: Paint the first hand.

Step 3: Paint the other hand.

Step 4: Without touching the paper, carefully position the hands into a heart shape.

Step 5: Gently press the hands down on the paper and hold into position.

Step 6: Lift the hands off the paper.

Step 7: Sprinkle glitter all over the handprints.

Step 8: Shake off the excess glitter.

Step 9: Cut the handprints into a heart shape.

Step 10: Stick or glue the handprints onto a red piece of paper.

Step 11: Give this card to that “special” someone on Valentine’s Day!
