Valentine’s Day ‘I’m Falling for You’ Handprint Tree Craft

Valentine's Day 'I'm Falling for You' Handprint Tree Craft

My kiddos and I have had a blast the past few weeks making crafts for Valentine’s Day. As our final craft for the holiday, we made some adorably simple “I’m Falling for You” handprint trees made from old magazine pages.



  1. Trace a handprint with arm on a page of the magazine with predominantly green colors.
  2. Cut out the handprint with arm.
  3. Cut hearts from pages of the magazine with predominantly red and pink colors.
  4. Glue the handprint with arm to the bottom of a full sheet of construction paper.
  5. Glue the hearts around the fingers of the handprint with a few hearts falling down toward the bottom of the paper.
  6. Write “I’m falling for you” across the bottom of the paper.

    This is another great Valentine’s idea. This might be something I will have my girls do this weekend. Or save for next year if need be!

    These are adorable! I think the kids I usually babysit for are a little too old for this, BUT I’ll definitely keep this in mind for the younger ones. Thanks for sharing.

    I remember when my kids would cut up magazines. What a great project to recyle them for Valentines day.

    This is a super adorable craft. I love crafts that use hands or feet, because they’re a great visual of how tiny our kids were before they became adults.
