Crafts for Kids: Handprint Keepsakes

Create quick and simple handprint pictures with your children that become treasured keepsakes.

What you Need:

  • Colourful Paper
  • Poster Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Sequins
  • Glue Stick
  • Pen and Paper

What to Do:

  1. Pour some poster paint onto a plate or tray, paint the childs hand and get them to make a print on the paper (they have more work to do so you have a perfect excuse to ask them to wash their hands now if you prefer) .
  2. Allow them to decorate the rest of the paper by glueing on sequins.
  3. Write out the poem below onto a seperate piece of paper (or print it out on your PC if you prefer):
  4. Glue the poem onto the finished piece and once it’s fully dried it’s fridge worthy!

This is the hand

You used to hold

When I was only

(Childs age) months / years old.

Suggestion: Laminate the picture or frame it to preserve it and give to grandparents as a gift
