First, trace the childs’ hand and cut out to create a tree trunk and branches (how sweet!). Next, using the finger paint have the child stamp their thumbs to make little hearts and cut them out. You can as many as you want, we made 8. Now, simply glue on the “tree” trunk onto the white cardstock and add your little hearts.
TIP- you can make an awesome Valentine’s Day card by simply folding the white cardstock in half and assembling the tree on the front page. Use the inside to write a message 🙂
