H is for Heart

This craft uses just one color of paint and supplies to make an adorable, personalized heart. It’s always a lot of fun to for the kids to see how their hand print can turn into something else. For this craft, we make a pink or red hand print for the heart, although any favorite color can be used. It’s a simple and hands-on way to learn about the letter H!


  • Letter “H” is for Heart printable
  • pink or red paint (or another favorite color)
  • paint brush
  • wipes to clean hands

H is for Heart

First, print the printable to go along with this craft. We like to practice the letter on the first page before making our handprint, and we do the next page while the handprint is drying.

Start by making a pink (or color of your choice) hand print for one half of the heart. Paint the entire palm and fingers with pink paint, but do not paint the thumb.
