Easy Handprint Heart Tree Craft for Kids

Today I’m sharing how we made this cute handprint heart tree craft with our kids. This is the perfect afternoon craft: little to no prep and super fun for the kids! 

I am a sucker for handprint/fingerprint crafts. When I saw this handprint butterfly tree floating around the internet I had to come up with a variation for Valentine’s Day.

Of course, there is nothing new under the sun and there are quite a few variations on this craft already, but here is our take on a handprint heart tree.  (Make sure you stick around to the end to see how the kid’s turned out!)

4. Glue your handprint (tree) onto the center of the white piece of card stock.

5. For the grass, cut a strip of the green paper and cut frays along one side (I curled every other one out for a 3-D effect.)
