35 Best (And Cutest) Valentines Handprint Art Ideas For Toddlers

What better way for little ones to show their love for family and friends this Valentine’s Day than some cute handprint art for toddlers?

Handprint crafts may be a little testing but are totally worth the blood, sweat and tears. Or should I say paint, dirty clothes and tears…

No really, they are worth i! Handprints add such a personal touch to any craft and make precious keepsakes too. There are plenty of toddler crafts I’ve made with my 4 little ones over the years that have had a few days or possible weeks on display. And then been swiftly dumped in the garbage. (Shhhh….)

But the handprint crafts will be treasured forever.

I hope you enjoy these toddler Valentines Day handprint art ideas. They’re too gorgeous for words! They’re also budget-friendly and use simple materials you probably already have at home.

Happy handprinting and happy Valentine’s!

A little about me

Mom of 4 kids, baby sleep expert plus home organisation and kids activities and crafts

Hi, I'm Sarah

Mom of four outrageously gorgeous Littles.  Yup, four!  The twins are now two and that title still brings me out in a cold sweat… Yet I’m just as determined to give them the best without losing my mind.  I reckon it’s possible!  Most days.  

I love a challenge and have to find out they ‘why’, ‘what’ or ‘how to’  –  there are rather a lot of these when it comes to kids… 

I also love, love, love things to be neat and tidy and just so.   The Littles normally have other ideas!
