My kids are growing way too fast and before I know it I am going to be lamenting the day they were little. Today I decided to commemorate just how little they still are by doing a handprint craft. I found a clear glass vase in my basement, the kind that you get when someone sends you flowers and it was just big enough for 5 little turkey hands. This is super easy to do and even the crafting challenged can do this in about 10-15 minutes tops.
Step 1: Paint your child’s hand the palm and thumb are brown and the other fingers are a mix of red, orange and green. I used washable poster paint so I didn’t have to worry about mess with the kids.
Step 2: Carefully help your child place a handprint on the vase, be sure they lift straight off to avoid smudging.
Step 3: Let dry then add a beak, feet and your child’s name with a sharpie, I also put the year on the bottom.
Step 4: Spray with a clear coat spray paint to sell your handprints on forever.
This is going to make an adorable centerpiece on Thanksgiving Day!
