This week my Princess and I decided to make some Valentine’s Day Cards. Gaining some inspiration from a stocking stuffer I bought for her, we decided to do Thumbprint Valentines.
Here are the supplies we used to make our Valentine’s Day Cards:
I cut out the colored paper she’d need for the cards and my Princess did the gluing, colored her own thumb and decorated her thumb print. She did great! She loves thumb print creations. We used washable markers so the ink washed right off.

Here is the second card we made:

Pinned it 🙂
Thanks Christy! I appreciate you!
Jennifer Williams says
That looks like something even I can do. I will be using this with my little one to make valentines for his brother and dad.
It is so easy and my 5 year old loved it. Thanks for coming by Jennifer.
How adorable are these? Love them!
Those are absolutely adorable. What a cute idea to do with the kids. Thanks.
We made thumbprint ornaments for Christmas. I might follow up and do the little bumblebees with my daughter. My mom adores bees, and also my daughters thumbs. 🙂
Oh my goodness, so so sweet! I love it!
I’m wondering if you think an 8-year-old would have fun with this project? What do you think? I just love the idea and they are such sweet Valentines!
I think an 8 year old would like to make it. She could do the cutting and even personalize it more.
Super cute ideas and it looks very easy which is always a plus in my book.

Wow thank you for these. The Bee Mine tags were really cute.

This is such a cute idea! I will have to do it with either my girls or Bible Class! Thanks!

OMG these great ideas, my 5 and 7 year old are going to have one heck of time picking out which one to make!
Those are so cute. When my kids were little we used to do things like this all the time. However we didn’t have Pinterest to go to but fortunately I have an “artsy fartsy” daughter.
This looks like such a cute idea. I know my daughter has a book showing how to make all kinds of art using your finger and thumb prints. We will be making some cards using this idea. Thanks for sharing.
Just pinned this. These are super duper cute!

This such a great idea. Fantastic for those on a budget, cimply some pretty paper, plain paper paint and a pen – cool stuff.
I reckon a lot of adults would secretly LOVE to ahve a go too LOL!! Thanks for a fun post.
These cards are so cute! I really like the bee one. I remember the fun of making homemade Valentine’s Day cards when I was young. 🙂
Terri Babin says
I absolutely love homemade Valentine’s Day cards, and these are fantastic! Thank you so much for sharing, we’ll definitely have to give these a try- the grandparents will adore them 🙂
How cute! Glad to see some of those Pinterest crafts are really doable without fancy equipment and lots of luck 😉
That is a wonderful idea! I am going to do this with my kids for Valentines. They will love playing with the paints. Thank you for your post 🙂

What an awesome concept for a Valentine’s project!
You should share this with us at Inspire Me Monday at Create With Joy!
I just made my first Valentine card of the season to celebrate my 15th wedding anniversary! 🙂

Cute crafts for doing with children! I did similar ones when I taught school – and with my own children. Actually, I just DL-ed a Thumprint Font that I discovered just yesterday to use on my current projects! ;-} (I’m here via Blogelina -)
Isis Serraon says
Those are really cute! And it looks like they’re quite easy to make!
Elisebet F says
Very, very cute! I think my son’s finally old enough to do a craft like this (with my help, of course). I’m pinning this, so we can make a card for his Daddy!
I like crafts that are age appropriate that my kids can actually do. Thanks for coming by Elisebet.
Heather Swarthout says
Such a cute idea! I love this. Definitely perfect for parents and grandparents too!
