Where a Valentine Handprint Craft Collides with Paper Tubes

Can we all just agree that heading to the store and trying to buy Valentine’s cards is a lot of work? It can be super stressful at times to try to pick out options from the ones that are left at the store.

This is why I love this fun Valentine activity. It allows the kids to be a part of creating their cute Valentine and lets us create fun memories together as well.

Tips for Making This Valentine Handprint Craft

Tacky Glue. We used tacky glue to create these Valentine handprint crafts because it is a strong adhesive that dries super fast!

Paper Roll. If you’d like to sterilize your paper roll before using it in a craft, you can bake it on your oven’s lowest setting around 200F for 20 minutes.

Handprints. Getting handprints from young children can sometimes be tricky. Instead of tracing, you may want to use a mess-free stamp pad instead!
