Thumbprint Valentines

Free Custom Photo Calendars

Show your loved ones that "thumb"body loves them! Make these adorable valentines in no time at all. If you like this craft, you should also check out our Hands of Love Valentine craft – another great "hands-on" activity.

What You’ll Need:
*Colored Paper
*Stamp Pads (red, pink)
*Black Marker

*Fold the paper in half to create a card. On the front of the card, have your child draw a large heart shape in pencil. (You may need to do this step for younger children.)
*Using your child’s thumb, press gently on the ink pad and make thumbprints covering the pencil heart. Allow to dry.
*Use black marker to write "Thumb"body loves you!
*Finish your card with a decorative border and don’t forget to write your message inside before giving your card to someone you love.
*Send us a picture of your kids and their thumbprint valentines and we may post it to our site!
