Footprint Valentines

Items Needed:

The beauty behind these cute little cards is that all you need is some paint and some cute helpers! There are so many different ways you can make prints and personalize them! Let the kids write their name and a special message to make it even sweeter!

Use your hands and feet to make adorable Valentine's!

The Perfect Pair

This cute print uses two little feet as the main focus! You can either use both feet from one child, or use one foot from two different children to make the perfect pair. I used the left foot and right foot of both my kids, and then drew a little stem and leaf to make their prints into a pear!

This is the cutest Valentine ever! Make your perfect "pear" with some green paint and some cute helpers!

Beary Special

Let somebody know how “beary special” they are to you! The bear can be made with a handprint or a footprint! They both are adorable, but the footprint is my favorite!

Use your hand to make a cute bear print!

My favorite of all was the bear footprint below! It is everything that a Valentine should be… cute, cuddly, and super special!


I mean, seriously, how cute!?! You could even use white paint and make the bear into a polar bear!
