    My 11 year old made one of these for me about 9 years ago. I still have it on the fridge. We’ve moved since then even. I just love it that much. This is a great heart shaped hand print tutorial. Thank you.

    This heart handprint craft is a great idea for toddlers to learn about the letter H. I have never seen this craft before but I will have to share this with my niece for her little ones along with my sister too. Thanks for sharing the heart handprint craft idea.
