Materials Needed To Make Fingerprint Valentine’s Day Cards
Here is what you will need to make the cards:
- Craft Paint – washable paint will work or I like to use non-toxic acrylic paint for a better coverage (just make sure to wash hands right away when you’re done)
- White Cardstock
- Alphabet Stickers
- Black Marker or Sharpie

Directions To Make Fingerprint Valentine’s Day Cards
Here are the step-by-step directions to make each card:
1. First, fold a piece of cardstock in half. We are using 8.5×11 white cardstock.
2. Dip the child’s finger into the paint and gently press onto your card.
3. Make 3 fingerprints vertically in red for the ladybugs.
Make 3 fingerprints horizontally for the bees.
For the caterpillar, make the head bigger and then add 7 or 8 smaller fingerprints beside it.
Add the wings, eye, mouth, stripes and stinger with a black marker.
Draw the eyes, a smile, antennae (add hearts to the top), and legs on the caterpillar with a black marker.
Draw on a head, a line for the wings, dots and antennae with a black marker.
Using alphabet stickers, spell out “Bee Mine”, “Be My Love Bug” and “Thumb Body Loves You”. You can also write this on the card with the black marker.
