I love hand and footprint art. It will be heartwarming to have these sweet masterpieces to look back on years from now. I already treasure seeing Hanna’s tiny hands and feet on her pieces from when she was a toddler.
I still have several hand/footprint things to make with the kids over the next couple weeks, but here is what we’ve made so far.
Jack made a reindeer, oops, I mean moose :-). Jesse made an angel and a Christmas tree. We also made a trip to our local paint your own pottery store to make a Family Handprint Tree and Jesse made a footprint manger. I can’t wait to get those back! I am excited to hang the tree up in our home. I hope to make a plate for each month/season/special holiday this year to put out on an easel in the kitchen where I display plates the kids have made in their pottery camps over the years. I’m thinking footprint snowmen for January with the three boys, and Hanna’s hands making the same thing as in my header above for February. The pottery pieces the kids make are priceless.
More later…off to do some catching up on my family blog…
