Handprint Valentines Crafts for Toddlers
Handprint crafts are a great activity for kids. It’s easy to do, and it’s lots of fun!
You can either make up your own designs as you go, or you can print ready made templates so that all your child has to do is place their cute little hands in washable paint and then put the handprint or thumbprint in the right spot on the paper.
The ready made templates are really nice to have if you are planning on giving your handprint art as gifts or framing them in a picture frame and hanging them on the wall.
If you would like to try some templates get our Valentines Day Handprint Art printables here!
They are super cute and make for the perfect craft!
Fine Motor Skills
Fine motor skills are the small movements that we use daily without even realizing it.
Everything from buttoning a shirt to tying shoes requires fine motor skills.
In school children are expected to complete tasks that require fine motor skills as well. Whether its holding a pencil, using scissors, or handling small items, fine motor skills are important!
If you would like to find more fine motor skills activities then be sure to check out 35+ Fine Motor Activities.
Sensory stimulation is also an important aspect of child development.
These handprint Valentine crafts help to stimulate the sense of touch. Finger paints and making hand and finger prints are great for this!
Another great way to develop the senses is through sensory bin play!
Sensory bins are not only a wonderful way to entertain your child, but a great way to incorporate sensory stimulation!
Sensory bins engage at least one, if not several, of the five senses: sight, sound, touch, smell or taste.
