For a fun craft for my four-year old daughter, I traced her hand, then cut out lots of copies from construction paper. Then I had her glue them to a round circle (cut from an old cereal box) to make an adorable hand-wreath. It was so cute and will be so neat to look at when she gets older to see how small her hand use to be.
My DIL had a great idea when my oldest grands were little. She painted and papered the walls of their rooms. Then she took some wide border paper and painted it white. She put it just about the height of a chair rail around the room. Then she had the kids put the palms of their hand on shallow plates of paint in bright primary colors and put their hand prints on the border paper. Very cute way to personalize their rooms, but easy to remove when they get older and want a different style.
Total Time: An afternoon
Editor's Note: Unfortunately, we don't have a picture to go with this entry as the border was created many years ago. If anyone tries this, please send us a photo of how it turned out.
