I have to say that as a couple MadDad and I have never really been in to celebrating Valentines Day. Mainly due to the fact that it is our wedding anniversary in March and we tend to celebrate that much more than Valentines, however, since having the boys things have changed.
It seems that they really want us to celebrate valentines, they have made fingerprint love heart cards for their dad and also made heart bookmarks which they are giving out to their teachers tomorrow.
Simple Fingerprint Heart Cards
It doesn’t really get much simpler than this and I think we originally saw this over at Thinly Spread a couple of years ago. You take a forefinger and angle your fingerprint then add a second one to make a heart shape. Chris’ are much neater than ours, but then my boys are only 8 and 7 and refused any help!
To make it simpler for younger children you can add the paint to a sponge rather than a paper plate like we did, in fact the sponge method is better for all ages, but the boys wanted to mix their own colours.
What a gorgeous idea!
We love Valentines day, especially as our son was born on Valentines Day! 🙂
Gorgeous photos and such a lovely simple idea – might have to steal this next year 😉
Oh and I absolutely HAVE to know where that top is from?? It’s gorgeous 😀 xx
i used to love fingerpainting!
What a fantastic, simple idea! I also love that top – does it come in mummy sizes?! 😉
a cute idea 🙂 I wish my son was little so he could make a card like this for me *sigh*
What a great, really effective idea! Also….I LOVE that top….gorgeous!!
This is such a lovely idea, simple but with a gorgeous outcome. Will love to try it out.
That really is so simple and fun! Even my kids could do it! No. Even I could do it! 😉 It really is fab.
I love these! I might make some with Kitty in half term as she’s hearts crazy at the moment!
Great idea, really simple, I might ven be able to get Baby to do this one 🙂 x
What a lovely idea – will be giving these a go with my two!
That is such a brill idea! Amazed I haven’t seen it done before!
Ooooo lovely and simple, will be trying this.
great idea, so simple too. Where is your sons top from?
I love fingerprint art and I hope to get my son into crafts such as this – currently he does not like it all so I don’t push it too much. I love your son’s top too, looks very Scandi.
Simple but effective – love the little hearts made from finger prints!
I saw some cards like this on Pinterest and thought it’s a great idea! Finger or hand prints always look so effective in a design
This is very cool. I’ can’t wait to do this with my baby girl when she is a little bit older. Maybe a card for daddy a birthday.
Thank you so much for sharing.
These are so lovely and simple – I MUST remember to make them with the girls next time we have the paints out (which seems to be all the time recently) x
Finger painting and fingers prints are always fun… perfect for any occasion… and so messy 🙂
