It seems as if the holidays fly by quicker & quicker each year. Next week is Christmas & then the following week we will be ringing in the new year. Not long after we clean up our New Year’s confetti, we will be celebrating another birthday for our little girl. She turns 4 in a few weeks & I cannot believe how quickly she has grown.
I would love to be able to keep her small forever. I know that this will not happen, but I can at least preserve some of her tiny cuteness while I still can. This is why I love hand & footprint crafts. It is fun to compare each new print with older ones just to see how much she has grown.
With 2016 fast approaching, I wanted to make a holiday keepsake to kick off the new year.
New Year’s Hand Print Craft
This was a simple and fun project.
Trace your child’s hand or have them trace their own.
Cut out a few different colored hands using the tracing.
Fan the hands out & glue them together. Cut out a handle for your hand clapper & glue underneath the hands.
Cut out confetti & streamers or let your child if they are able to use scissors. We have been working on our cutting skills a lot lately, so Mai couldn’t wait to help me cut the confetti.
Glue the confetti & streamers into place.
Don’t forget to label your clappers with your child’s name & the date.
Wishing you all the best for the New Year.
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us on Facebook as well.
Aw, so cute and definitely a good way to hold onto a bit of their youth and smallness while we still can 😉
