How To Make A Hand Print Heart

hand print heart and valentines day poem Have students paint both hands red. To make the heart print, have them slant their hands (fingers toward each other), firmly pressing their left hand to the paper, then their right hand. [NOTE: Their fingers will overlap forming the point of the heart.] Invite your preschoolers to make the heart print on one side of the paper so that there's room to glue the poem.

The Poem

A Valentine for You

Valentines, valentines,

Pink, red and blue,

I've made a pretty one

Just for you!

Use word processing software to type out the poem, add a border, and print it onto card stock. Students will then be able to cut around the border and use glue to attach the poem to their calendar page.
