Valentines Day handprint heart canvas

If you’d like to make them, here’s what you’ll need:

-Thin canvas (I got a pack of 3 in the craft section at Walmart for a little over $3) 
-Glue gun 
-2 foam brushes 
-Pink and red paint 
-Wide ribbon 
Also needed, but not pictured: Thin paint brush 

First what you’ll need to do is tell your children that you are going to do a craft that involves them painting their hands. Watch how excited they get. :) 

Next, paint one of their hands pink and the other red, and press down onto the canvas in a heart shape.
