Craft: Family handprint artwork

Over the Christmas break my little family made a simple handprint artwork for our hallway.

The handprints were done in order of the family member with the largest hand (which was Daddy's) to the smallest hand (Cherub's).

For the paint we all chose our favourite colour...then ta-da, our artwork was complete!

All you need is:
  • A blank canvas
  • Paint brushes
  • Water
  • A selection of water based paints (I used school grade acrylic paints, which are easy to wash off)
  • Sticky wipes (easy to clean little hands that want to go straight into the mouth!)

The painting is a lovely reminder to look back on and see how big your little one's hands were at that age (Popette is 4, and Cherub at the time was 15 1/2 months).
