Valentine’s Day Cards (Fingerprinted)

I wish I could take credit for these lovely Fingerprint Valentines Day cards but once again it was thanks to a Google Image Search.

My daughter is 4 and managed it and I think you could do it with young babes as well but you’d have to position their fingers.

You will need:

  • White paper
  • Selection of coloured paint (I used red, orange and pink)
  • Coloured Card
  • Prit Stick
  • Gel Pen



How to do it:

1) Have your children create a couple of sheets of the heart fingerprints so you have a few good ones to choose from

2) Cut and fold the card
3) Once the prints dry carefully tear them out.  If you’re kids are old enough they could probably do this bit themselves.
4) Use the Prit Stick to glue the fingerprint hearts onto front of card.
5) Personalise them, I used a silver pen

Happy Valentine’s Day!





Love Rocks!

Whenever I need inspiration for crafting, I always turn to my mate Maggie from and once again she has come through trumps or should I say hearts!

These Love Rocks caught my eye as they are so simple and required very little in terms of materials.  I think they’re going to make perfect Valentine’s Day gifts. However, posting to Canada or South Africa is not an option.

You will need

  • PVA glue (we watered ours down a bit)
  • Rocks
  • A selection of fabric
  • Scissors


  1. Dig some rocks out from under the frozen earth, wash in a colander and leave dry.
  2. Get your neighbour around who is brilliant with anything crafty and blag her to bring fabric, glue and scissors.
  3. Sit back and watch her do her magic.
  4. All joking aside the 4-year olds enjoyed it for as long as their short attention spans allowed.  But, Eva and I could be found carrying on long after they left the room.  However, she made me cut out my own hearts!

Happy Valentine’s Day!





Egg-cellent! Heart Shaped Eggs!

One of my Aunts emailed me a list of ‘25 Clever Things’. She knows I’m not a Suzy Homemaker but there were a couple of good ones on there and this one grabbed my attention.

I think they’d be perfect for Valentine’s Day breakfast for your little ones and they were very easy to make.


You will need:

1 Hard boiled egg
A chopstick
2 rubber bands
Piece of card

Here’s what we did:

1) The original instructions called for a milk carton, but here in the UK I haven’t seen any as our milk tends to come in plastic jugs. I used a piece of card (approx 8x20cm), more specifically, the front cover of an estate-agents folder. I chose this as it had a coating so the egg didn’t stick t to it.

2) Fold the card in half. You may have to trim it a bit later. See picture.

3) Peel the egg when it is still warm and place it in the card. The gently press the chopstick into it, not too hard, as I did and damaged the egg a bit. Then secure each end with a rubber band.

4) Then place in the fridge for 10-15 min.

5) Remove the package and but the egg in half perpendicular to the chopstick dent.
