Handprint and Footprint Valentines Cards

I saw this idea on Children’s Learning Activities last year and thought the message was so cute.  I’ve had it stored away in my mind since. 

For J, this activity was a ton of finger painting fun.  I taped some butcher paper on our kitchen floor and gave him a plate of finger paint.  He ended up filling 4 or 5 long sheets of paper.   While he was enjoying all the painting, I was sure to get some hand and footprints out of the fun.  We ended up having more than enough prints for grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, and some for mom to keep too. 

We cut out the prints, glued them down and the wrote the message, “I love you from the tips of my fingers to the tips of my toes.”

They’re ready for the mailbox!
