Valentine’s for boys are tough, especially as they get older! My son’s in third grade and requested something with a Splatoon theme. This Sticky Hand Printable Class Valentine was my best attempt to make that happen for him. We went with the sticky hands since we obviously can’t attach a water gun to the Valentine and send it to school! He was happy with the paint splats though, so I’ll call it a win!
THIS ACTIVITY WORKS WELL WITH
The kids love these hands! The Valentine’s are quick, easy, and cheap to put together.
Sticky hands I’ve ordered mine from amazon a few times.

Cut each of the Valentine’s out. Have your child write their name on the Valentine. Attach the sticky hand. Our hands are very sticky so they stick all on their own but you can use tape if needed.
Note: A reader has mentioned the hands left an oil on her cards. Different brand sticky hands may have different residues on them so some may leave it and some may not. To be safe you can always just staple the little baggie onto the card as well.
I love having them all finished and ready to go for their parties in 2 weeks!
We even changed it up a bit the next year so that my daughter could use the same cards. We found these fun hand slappers in the Target dollar section and they go perfectly too!

Let me know if you decide to use them!!
Thank you for the printable! My 4th grade son is going to use it to make Valentine’s for his classroom exchange!
I made these this year but sadly for me they didn’t come out well. I got slim hands from amazon too and assembled like you did. However the hands had oil or something in them and left huge grease marks all over the cards after we stuck them on (they bled grease all over). Bummer!
Oh no! I wonder if different brands use different sticky residue? Sometimes mine come in individual mini baggies that can be stapled on. Not as pretty but would do the job. I’ll update the post with a mention of it. Thanks for the update!
Love this! Just what I was looking for. Thank you for sharing your creativity!!
