It doesn't take long for little hands to grow into big hands. So, every year I always make sure I get the kids' handprint and date this magical moment.
I find it easier to spread out the non toxic paints onto paper plates so they can really squish around their little hands. I have a pile of them left over from Christmas, enough to last the next 5 Christmas'.
Tyler enjoys comparing his handprints to previous years, it is nice for him to visualise his growth ( I keep telling him, it is all of those vegies he is eating).
