While browsing around the Ucreate blog, I came across a Handprint Heart craft that they featured from The Idea Room. I thought it was so cute and decided to make a similar version with my toddler. Be sure you head over to see what they wrote on theirs!
Here's how we made our Handprint Heart with Poem Card:
First, I painted one of his hands pink and then pressed it down on the paper in a closed position. Then, I painted his other hand purple and pressed it down overlapping the pink handprint to form a heart shape. I thought adding a cute poem would be the perfect touch since my little guy can't write his own message yet. I wrote it lightly in pencil first and then went back with my acid-free black pen and rewrote it. When the ink finished drying, I erased the pencil marks.
Ten Little Fingers Poem:
Even ten little fingers can't count,
the way I love you with all my heart!

I love this sweet heart. I'm going to trait with my class this year for a crd to give to their families.

This is so special. I would love to do with my child for her grandmother.
