I painted my daughters handprints as Santa Claus and I loved how they turned out. You could paint them however you want or even change the outer shape around the handprint. The possibilities are endless but this is a must for little ones because they grow WAY TO FAST and you want to cherish how little their hands once were. Merry Christmas to everyone and I hope you do this to remember how little your baby once was.
This recipe made enough for 2 handprints, my daughters are 1 & 4 so they have little hands. This recipe is easy to double if you need more or have bigger kids.
