Who wouldn't "love" this gift from the heart for Valentine's Day? It's so easy to make that even your youngest artists can get in on the act. Best of all, the result will  leave your heart (and home) filled with L-O-V-E. 

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A canvas of any shape or size (Affordable ones often can be found at the dollar store or craft stores.)
  • Painters tape or masking tape
  • Red and pink finger paint...or a whimsical color of your choice!

Adults: Using masking tape or painters tape, tape the word "love" onto the canvas. (We used cursive here, but Roman letters are a little easier.) Let your child finger paint on top of the tape and over the entire canvas.

After the paint has dried, carefully pull the tape off. Voila! Art from the heart, made with real love!
