Handprint poster

Handprint art is special as it’s a great way to capture how small your kids are as they grow! This creation from Gooseberry Hill Playgroup is so sweet and something that will be treasured.

Thumbprint Butterfly Mugs

Using acrylic paint, dip your child’s thumb into the paint (you may want to stamp it onto some paper or card to remove excess) and then stamp it onto the mug. Using other colours (and making sure your child’s thumb is cleaned) stamp two prints on either side to create wings. Set the mug aside to dry (for 24 hours). For long lasting results cover with some modge podge once dried.

 

 

 

 

Personalised oven mitts / aprons / tote bags 

This is a fun craft little ones will love! Let them get creative and decorate plain colour oven mitts, an apron or a canvas tote bag with some fabric markers/paint or acrylic paint. For something even more personal, decorate the items with your little one’s handprints.

 

 

 

 

Fingerprint/Handprint Pots

Using a terracotta pot and acrylic paints, decorate the pots with handprints or get your little one to paint their very own creation! Plant some flowers or herbs for a great gift that can be used for many years.
