  • Paint your child’s hand green and press it onto the middle of the plate, so the fingers are on the top half
  • Let dry
  • Use the red, orange, and pink paint to make hearts with thumbs and flowers with fingertips
  • Flowers are just 5 fingertips with an orange fingertip in the center of the circle
  • Hearts are 2 thumbprints facing opposite of each other
  • *you can paint a point in the bottom corner to make it really resemble a heart
  • To make the cover use a paper plate that is cut in half
  • Turn it around and glue it to the bottom half of the plate
  • Finish with another thumbprint heart
  • Add ribbon with your glue to the back of the handprint plate, so I can hang it on the wall

Happy Valentine’s Day
