Fingerprint Valentines

I am so excited to share these adorable "mini" fingerprint valentine's cards E and I made yesterday! The best part? They are painted on index cards!

I don't know about you, but I just adore cards and letters sent to me that have been twritten on index cards. OK, it's probably just me but oh, they do make a fun canvas for small hands to work with.

To make these minimalist cards is super simple and something that both you and your toddler will enjoy. All you need are...

-A few Index Cards (ours have the lines on the back for writing a sweet love note)
-Water Colors
-Wee One's fingers
-Black Ball Point Pen (I like Jetstream Pens the best)

What to Do:
Wet the watercolor with a damp towel. Then, using a wet sponge press your child's pointer finger (or thumb for larger hearts) into the sponge to moisten. Dip the moistened finger into the watercolor and then press onto the index card twice side by side to create a "heart shape". Allow to dry. Trace the hearts with a black pen.

Draw hearts, roses, arrows, etc on some of the cards and hand them over to your toddler to decorate. You can see E's creation below:

Have fun!
