Fingerprint Heart Keepsake
Looking for a heartfelt and personalized Mother’s Day craft for toddlers? Look no further than the adorable Fingerprint Heart Keepsake! This simple yet meaningful activity is sure to bring a smile to any mom’s face. Let me guide you through the steps of creating this lovely keepsake.
To begin, gather your materials. You’ll need some paper or cardstock, washable paint in various colors, and a marker or pen. Make sure to choose paints that are safe for little ones to use. Now, let’s get started!
- Start by folding the paper or cardstock in half so that it forms a symmetrical heart shape when cut. You can either freehand the heart shape or find a template online to trace onto the paper.
- Once you have your heart shape, it’s time for the fun part – fingerprinting! Dip your child’s finger into one of the paint colors and carefully press it onto one side of the heart shape. Encourage them to make multiple fingerprints in different colors all around the heart, creating a beautiful mosaic effect.
- Allow the paint to dry completely before moving on to the next step. This might take a little while, so be patient!
- Once dry, take your marker or pen and write a special message on the other side of the heart-shaped cardstock. It could be something simple like “Happy Mother’s Day” or even a personalized message just from your toddler.
- Finally, present this adorable Fingerprint Heart Keepsake to Mom on her special day! She will surely appreciate both the effort put into making it and the sentimental value behind those tiny fingerprints.
This craft not only allows toddlers to explore their creativity but also serves as a lasting memento that captures their small fingerprints forever. It’s an excellent way for young children to express their love for Mom while also developing fine motor skills through painting and writing.
My name is Andrea Thompson and I’m a home based freelance writer. I’m 23 years old, married to my best friend, and mother to a wonderfully independent and opinionated 3 year old girl and step-mother to a sweet seven year old boy. I live in a tiny, little town in Kentucky, where I spend my free time fishing with my kids.
Writing has always been my passion, which I followed through high school, and for a while in college. Life happened, and once I discovered we were pregnant, I switched directions; opting for the healthcare industry because of the stability.
Finally, years later, I was in a place where I could leave the day job that never truly made me happy, and pursue my dreams. I’ve built, and am still building, my writing career from scratch. But, I’m passionate and I’m good at what I do. And, in the end, I can prove to my daughter that she can do anything she wants with this life.
