Valentine’s for Grandparents

buttons Valentines for Grandparents

Our Grandparents don’t live close, but we still like to wish them a Happy Valentine’s Day. I try to find things to send that are fun and meaningful. This year I made a mad lib for my boys to fill out for them.

I added the hearts on the bottom for them to draw some pictures in for their Grandparents. Beckham is a little young for this, but I still wanted him to have something fun to do.  So, I took this cute little saying and made a cute page to stamp his little hands and feet on.

    I Loved doing these with the kids. We made several for family members. It will be price to look back on these in a few years :) I am just starting a blog (2 days ago..lol) I was wondering if I could link this to my post? Not sure yet how it all works, but I want to upload the kids and want to be sure to give the credit :) Thanks again for this printable! I Love it!

    So far the only hand print thing I have is one that they did in a church nursery on mother’s day. Love that! Came back, great card, and a clean kiddo. *grin*

    For a first time finger painting/hand print/foot print… what is the best pain or method to go about? At this point my stash consists of regular watercolor paint and do a dot markers.

    Hi Margaret,

    I cant speak for what is “best” I usually just go for what is convenient. I have tons of the little craft paint in just abut every color. I usually use that with very strict supervision and wash immediately. It seems to work really well at home but I usually have the take their shirts off when we do it. At a school or church nursery I would definitely use a non toxic water based paint such as this one:

    Hope that helps!
