The fingerprint version of this heart card is an easy Valentine’s day card for toddlers to make. Adults will need to help by cutting out the templates and then kids can stamp their fingerprints on the heart card. You could also have kids just color the card with markers or paint. It’s an easy one to set-up and a great gift personalized with a photo!
