Create quick and simple handprint pictures with your children that become treasured keepsakes.
What you Need:
- Colourful Paper
- Poster Paint
- Paint Brush
- Glue Stick
- Pen and Paper
What to Do:
- 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) .
- Allow them to decorate the rest of the paper by glueing on sequins.
- Write out the poem below onto a seperate piece of paper (or print it out on your PC if you prefer):
- 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

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