If you’re looking for an easy Valentines craft for kids to make, why not try this simple thumbprint heart bookmark. Kids can give it as a Valentines gift to their loved ones, who will then think of them every time they read a book!
Red and White Card Stock
Pink or Red Craft Paint
Cut a rectangle about 6-8 inches long and 3 inches wide from the red card stock.

Punch a whole in the top of the bookmark and thread the pipe cleaner through. Twist it to attach.
To create the thumbprint hearts:
Cover thumb with paint
Press down on the white paper with the tip of the thumb angled out to the left. Repeat, but angle the tip
of the thumb out to the right with the bottom of the thumb slightly overlapping the first thumbprint.
Continue this to make a row of thumbprint hearts down the bookmark. Allow to dry.
