Valentines day is still going strong at our house! I had some friends over yesterday for a craft day and we made a few projects including this adorable baby valentine footprints craft. It is a perfect gift for my friend Lydia’s husband from their son Parker (6 months old).
You might have already seen my toddler hearts post from last week. I had a toddler crafting day and the little girls painted hearts for Valentines day. This footprint craft was done the exact same way but we used Parker’s little feet.
For instructions on how to prepare this project visit my Toddler Painted Hearts Tutorial Here. Quick version- you mod podge craft paper onto a shoebox lid or dollar store “artwork” then cut a heart out of white paper. (Wow, I just summarized my two page post into one sentence… but the pictures are always helpful!)
This was a two man job for sure! I was supposed to be helping but of course I grabbed my camera to document so LeeAnn had to jump in and do the helping.
Green first, then blue! We had already picked the blue colored craft paper so we knew what colors of paint we wanted to use.
After letting the paint dry we simply glued the heart onto the paper canvas board. I added the little label to the bottom as well, I think it adds a nice touch. If you want this label you can download it from my Toddler Painted Hearts Tutorial Here.
A few days after I published the above post my friend came over and wanted to make one of these for her daughter. It turned out so cute I had to update my post and add this butterfly valentine artwork as well.
I hope you are getting crafty with your little ones and making fun (messy) memories.
