Footprints On My Heart, A Craft for Valentine's Day

For an easy craft idea (maybe even cards to send to Grandmas), try making a heart thumb or footprint card. These are also great to keep in memory boxes!

You will need:
  • Construction paper (red and pink)
  • White craft paint
  • Paint brush
  • Glue stick
1. Cut out a large (larger than your child's feet) heart shape out of pink paper.
2. Using a paint brush, brush a light layer of craft paint on your child's bottom of foot. 
3. Press onto paper. 
4. Repeat with other foot to create a heart shape.
5. Let dry.
6. Once the paint is dry, glue to a sheet of red paper and write your Valentine's Day message!

DM Alternatives: The feet work really well with smaller kids. If you have older kids, the thumbs also work really well.
