This adorable mini canvas fingerprint keepsake is just one of many DIY keepsake crafts which kids can have fun making for someone special. We have lots more heart crafts and activities that little ones might enjoy doing too. 

Just the fingerprint heart on the mini canvas alone is a beautiful keepsake, but the poem makes it extra special. 

I know you wipe some away,
But these prints were made to stay. 
So keep them forever, a treasure they'll be.
A special 'I LOVE YOU' for you from me. 


If you don't have any mini canvases available you could use the heart shape to make a special fingerprint keepsake on card or use the same poem to make a handprint keepsake

Fingerprint Heart Poem Keepsake

  1. Cut a piece of sticky back plastic/ contact paper to the size of your mini canvas.
  2. Cut a heart shape out of the middle of the sticky back plastic (TIP: Draw around a heart shaped biscuit cutter)
  3. Press the sticky back plastic/ contact paper onto the canvas.  Make sure you press down hard around the edge of the heart shape.
  4. Dip your finger in paint and fill the cut out heart shape with fingerprints. We kept to 3 colours for each heart. 
  5. Once the paint has dried remove the sticky back plastic.  You will be left with a neat heart of fingerprints.
  6. Print off and stick the poem on the bottom of the canvas.


fingerprint keepsake craft for valentines day or mothers day.  Perfect for toddlers and preschoolers.

When making our fingerprint hearts I put the colours each of the children had chosen onto a paper plate for them to dip their fingers into. 

Harry (aged 4) did his fingerprints really carefully so you could see the individual fingerprints well once they had dried.  Daisy (17 months) preferred to mix hers together a bit.
