Kids can make the cutest cactus Valentine’s Day craft with our free craft template and their adorable little handprints! The template comes with four different styles and phrases to choose from because you know I like giving you options. 2 of the templates have a funny cactus pun (“Hug me”–hehe because it’s a cactus and the other one says “I’m Totally Stuck on You”), the third option says “I Love You!” and the fourth option has writing lines so kid’s can write their own special message.  You can turn their craft into a homemade Valentine’s Day card or hang it up to decorate during the month of love. Whenever someone looks at it they are sure to smile and feel special this holiday!

DIRECTIONS

Cover child’s hand with green paint and make a handprint on white paper. I like to place my hands on top of my kiddos fingers so they don’t wiggle. I had the kids keep their fingers kind of close together instead of fanned out. If they want to have one cactus in their pot have them keep the thumb in too, if they want two cacti in their pot have them put their thumb out a bit to the side.

Cut out the green handprint. If you want, you can use a pencil to draw around the handprint first. The shape kind of looks like a glove or mitten because each finger is not defined.

Glue the cactus handprint to your background paper.

Glue the pot template at the bottom of the cactus. It can overlap a little bit to make it look like the cactus is inside the pot.

Crinkle up a small piece of tissue paper and glue it to the cactus to add a flower.
