Just had to pop back and show the completed Birthday artwork for DH from the kids. I really wanted to do something special for him , from them this year! It has been a big past 12 months, and Noel is the best Dad anyone could ever hope for, and I wanted to show him that!
This craft was easy, cheap and a great idea for Fathers Day!!
I had seen a similar thing on Pinterest (I am totally addicted BTW) but they used different types of scrapbooking paper with traced hands (purhaps easier and a damn site cleaner!!) but not as fun for the kiddies!

Here is is hanging in our Photo Gallery.

And up close!! Each hand was painted on separate pieces of paper, then I cut them out and glued them together. I could have done it all on the same piece at the same time, but they I had the worry of paint colours mixing, and it not ending up as nice. At least this way I was able to pick the best hand print out of the bunch and combine them!

And obviously Stella's hand is dark pink, Max's is blue and Lacey's is light pink!! Too cute!!
Try it out for yourself, and if you do, I'd love to see!!


  1. Loving this, beautiful idea and such a great keepsake.

  2. Thanks Bianca, My hubby LOVED it! ANd you are so right, i want to do handprints every six months or so, so good to look back on!
