A simple idea for sending “a little love”.

  • Blank card/ envelope set (or fold cardstock in half)
  • Stamp pad or paint (in a shallow container)
  • Smock
  • Craft tray
  • Damp cloth
  • Template “Sending you a little love…” SendingaLITTLELove
  • Printer
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors


  • Don your smock and put your blank card in your craft tray.
  • On the front of the card, make a heart with your child’s fingerprints (as seen in the photograph), using either a non-toxic stamp pad or paint.  Let it dry overnight.  Be sure to have a damp cloth on hand to prevent any inky fingerprints ending up somewhere unintended!
