Handprint Heart Tree

We thought we would make my dad a picture who is in hospital at the moment. This handprint heart tree is really simple and quick and would be great for any occassion where toddler input is needed, like Mothers Day, Fathers Day or Valentines Day!

Painted hand
 
All you need is a toilet roll and some paint.

First I painted my littles ones hand and arm and pressed it on to the paper. I filled in any spaces that didn’t take with the paint to make it look like a tree trunk and branches.

Then I pressed the toilet roll in to a heart shape. This will be the stamp to make heart shaped leaves.

Press the end of the toilet roll in to red or pink paint and print all over the tree to create the leaves. I put the paint on a plate to make this easier for the girls to do.

A few green fingerprints later for grass and Grandads picture is done!
 
I think this would look good with hearts cut out of pink, red or even green paper, then the child can just stick them on instead of using the toilet roll.
