Free Valentine’s Day Poem from Preschoolers to Parents

This first printable features a large heart and an original poem (written by me) that says:

I made this special handprint heart to say,

Happy, Happy Valentine’s Day!

You give the best hugs and I’m glad you’re mine,

Won’t you be my Valentine?

This Heart page is perfect for creating a handprint heart craft.

Handprint Heart Valentine Poem For Preschoolers - child shown with hand painted pink and handprint heart completed

Heart Made from Handprints

You will need the following:

Washable Paint (we prefer this paint by Crayola)

A paint brush

– Paper plate or towel to lay the brush down

– The Free Valentine’s Day Poem printable (directions to access it are at the end of this tutorial)

Simply take your child’s hand, paint it generously with your choice of paint. With the heart printable upside down, carefully take their hand and place it on the poem printable page. Press his/her hand down firmly and lift it back up again.

I prefer the look of the hands when you turn the page upside down and their thumbs meet in the middle of the heart, but you can absolutely do your own creative spin on this!

Valentine’s Day Poem with Heart Handprint Art

Next up is another Valentine’s Day Poem with child handprints. This page has a modified poem that replaces the first line of the poem so that it reads:

I made this special Valentine Art to say,

Happy, Happy Valentine’s Day!

You give the best hugs and I’m glad you’re mine,

Won’t you be my Valentine?

Aside from the poem, this page has been left blank for your own purposes or craft idea.

We did something kind of fun with it!

I cut out two hearts from cardstock and placed it on the page. Then I painted my child’s hand and stamped their hand right on top of the heart.

This created a cool effect where the hand appears to have a heart on it! Isn’t it so cute!

Note: I probably wouldn’t attempt this craft with a whole classroom because you do need 2 hearts per kid (and that can get tedious!) but it’s a fun idea to do with just a few kids!
