I know that you have seen these before.

Super sweet hearts, made from handprints.
Don’t you LOVE the sweet girly nails?

I made these with all 3 of my kids.

This picture is so sweet to me, with their different sizes of hands!  Who doesn’t melt when they see these kinds of things?

This tiny hand was the hardest to hold still! valentine heart handprint 9
But the oldest one, reminds me the most of the Woven Danish Baskets. valentine heart handprint 10
I was not going to put Valentine’s Decorations up until February 1st.  I like to surprise the kids with decorations all of a sudden being up one day.
But I had to hang these as soon as we made them.  And they will stay up for the whole month of February.
Don’t forget to put their names, ages, and the year on them.  I put those things on after I took the pictures for this blog! ;)

Boo, Jax and Bo said...

These are adorable... My two year old certainly liked making them - too bad his mostly look like giant blobs becuase he wasn't quite into putting his fingers together or holding them in one spot! But still - cute and we had fun so thank you!
