Create a family keepsake when you use a large canvas, and paint each for your childrens hand prints to make a heart shape, then add a stem and whimsical details to make it look like a flower garden.
Other tips for this project:
Have Mom and Dad include their hand print flowers.
Use a thumbprint to make small buds or even smaller heart shaped flowers.
Print the hand print hearts onto construction paper, fold it in half, and make a Valentine’s card for a family member or friend.
When the prints are dry, let the kids use the markers and decorate the hearts with a face, arms, and legs instead of into flowers.
For more than one child, print the hearts on individual canvases instead of one large one.
Start when your child is young on a large canvas, and add a new heart each year to see how their hands have grown.
