This heart and hand tree is an old favourite of ours and is great for pre-schoolers.

And I just adore this decoration for above the bed. I think this could look amazing above a “grown ups” bed too!

Make your own ‘Hearts and Hand Tree’ using your little one’s hand to make the tree trunk – you can trace around it or use paint and stamp their hand print on.

Add your own love heart leaves by using a heart shaped paper punch (if you have one) or help your little one cut them out.  Use an old magazine, old gift wrapping paper, newspaper  -whatever you like!

I think this one would be gorgeous framed.  In no time at all you are sure to be marveling at how little their hands were.

Enjoy!
