I had a vision in my head of what I wanted them to do. I folded some finger paint paper in half to make a card, and used a paper plate to hold our paint.
I helped Madisyn first, I put red paint all over both of her hands and set them down with the thumbs pointing up to make a tip of a heart. I tried to connect the other fingers at the other end but it didn't seem to work out as planned.
It didn't come out perfect, not sure if it was the paper or if there wasn't enough paint on her hands or it dried to quickly when she put them on the paper. It didn't matter too much anyway because Mady decided to continue to paint on her paper. Eventually. we lost sight of what was supposed to be there. HA! She is an artist in the making!
We pressed them down as hard as we could trying to fill in any white spots. It worked a lot better than Madisyn's did but still not perfect.

The project didn't go as planned, but they enjoyed themselves. Next time I will try a different type of paper, but I didn't have any other kind around the house.

I would love to hear any Valentine's Day crafts you have tried. Please feel free to comment below!
Until next time...Cheers!
