We made some fun and personalized Valentine’s Day cards to send to the kids Grandparents. We painted each of their hands with two different colors and put each handprint on paper to form the shape of a heart. Then each child printed a personalized message around the handprints in the shape of a heart. (I drew a line in pencil around the hearts to help them write along to maintain the heart shape. When we were finished we erased the pencil).
Preschooler: Hand print Duck. Give paint to children and show them how to put their hand on the paper. Allow them to put the head, eye, beak and feather on the duck. Standard: Touch, grasp, reach, and manipulate: The child will coordinate the use of his or her hands, fingers and sight in order to manipulate objects in the environment.
