Share the Love! Fingerprint Heart Project

{Hello! If you are checking us out for the first time and like what you see you can subscribe here and get new ideas to use with your kids that are fun, practical, and purposeful! }  

If you loved the Bird Fingerprint project, you’ll love the heart project too!   Although my sister and I live over 1400 miles apart, we worked together to make this one-of-a-kind heart for my grandmother.  It’s for her 94th birthday in April, but I have a feeling she may receive it a little early!

Supplies:

11×14 flat artist canvas  (this is a link to a 2-pack)

acrylic paint in rainbow colors (this links to a fabulous rainbow pack)

11×14 picture frame 

Directions:
(Make sure to click here if you’d like more details)
1.  I made a heart template to keep us in the lines.
2.  Each person stamped their finger (after practicing) about 30 times.
3.  Let it dry between each person.
4.  Write your name (see tips from the bird post) and then stamp your finger.
5.  My family is on the left and my sister’s is on the right (kids are at the top).

  6. This is one of my favorite finger print ideas to date and will become my closing argument for why I want more than two kids.
