Keepsakes are for any age. Something made from the little hands of little loves are my favorite. Hand prints are simple and easy. You only need paint and paper, I would also suggest a paint brush. Our family came up with great questions to add. Each year we can see how their hands grow and how their answers change. The trick is to keep last years project out of site until you have completed the current one.
Step One: Write out questions and answers in order to figure out what size paper you will need.
Step Two: Use brush to paint hands and feet. Gently place on paper and be sure to lift straight up. Younger children will need more help to ensure their hands are completely flat, no squishing no matter how fun it may seem.
Step Three: Transfer questions and answers.
Now that you have completed such lovely masterpieces here comes the hard part. Deciding who to give them to or where in the home you will place them.
I would suggest making more then one as I have found these to be high in demand. I allow my boys to have fun and paint while we answer questions. This prevents them from playing with the paint when you are trying to get a good print. Allowing them to get messy before hand is a great idea because once you are done it can be bath time while the paint dries.
Have a great time making memories with your keepsakes.
