Valentine Gift: Clap Happy

Clap Happy

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

On February 14, six-year-old Quinlan Adams of Scottsbluff, Nebraska, gives his teachers a big round of applause and a little luxury: a tube of hand lotion.


  • Card stock
  • Marker
  • Tube of lotion
  • Double-sided tape


  1. Trace your child's hand on card stock. Cut out the traced hand and use it as a template to make a second hand.
  2. Write a message with marker. Affix the hands to a tube of lotion and add card stock hearts with double-sided tape.

Suggested Messages:

"You deserve a hand!"

"Hands down, you're the best."

"I've got to hand it to you!"
