Who doesn’t love a tiny baby’s handprints in an art project?
This is a wonderful creative gift for you to do with your baby that anyone will love, especially in the fall season!
Supplies you will need:
- construction paper
- a marker
- tempera paint: colors orange, yellow and white
First, take the paintbrush and paint the three colors of paint on your child’s hand. If you have a tiny baby, use their foot instead!
Second, press their hand on the construction paper and hold down for a few seconds. Then carefully pull it off. I always have wipes nearby to wipe off the extra paint. (Tempera paint is a great choice to use with kids; acrylic paint does not come out of clothing.)
Lastly write your child’s name, date and age on the side of the candycorn print. Add a sweet note if you are giving the art to a relative for the holidays. Make sure to leave a “border” in case you want to frame the creation!
