Valentine's Day: Love Handprint and Footprint Canvas Art
What you need:
- pink and white paint
- paintbrush, one large and one small
Paint your canvas with an ombre technique by starting with the pink paint on the bottom. Then mix in a little bit of white paint into the pink paint as you paint upwards. Keep adding white to the pink until you are to the top. Let it dry.
Paint your child's hand with the white paint and stamp where the "o" would be in the word "love". Then paint your child's feet, one foot at a time, and stamp them in the shape of a V where the "v" would be in the word "love".
You can let the hand and footprint stamps dry or get right to painting the L and E. When you are finished let it dry and then admire. Save it for years to come and marvel at how tiny those hands and feet once were.
