Cute Craft for Kids!
I found this idea from another website...when I find it again I will post the URL.
My kids are 1 and 3 and they both enjoyed doing this project. They made theirs for the Grands for Xmas.
Cute craft to do for almost any occasion.
This project is very versatile...so you can choose how you want it to look.
*Sorry for the lack of photos*
First off you will need to get some finger paint. You could either put some into a plate or (like I did) paint your childs hands with a brush. Then let your child press it onto a piece of construction paper.
Lay the hand print(s) to the side to dry. In the meantime, let your kids pick out embellishments. (My son chose the feathers...and my daughter chose the bows.)
While your kids are rummaging through your craft box for add ons...you can go ahead and write up this poem to go along with your "hands"......
My Hand Print
Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls
But everyday I'm growing big
And soon I'll be very tall
Then all my little hand prints
Will be hard to recall
So here's a special hand print
Just so that you can say
this is how my fingers looked
when I placed them here today.
When the hands dry...figure out how you want everything to lay. (My layout was very simple...but cute.) Now just tape your pieces down...or glue them. I chose to use tape instead of glue for fear of wrinkling my paper.
