Make a super quick and simple card or framed artwork gift for Father’s day (or Mother’s day, Christmas, birthdays, you name it!) as a lovely memory of the relative size of the children’s little hands. So easy that everyone can get involved from baby to teenager, and easy to put together in few quick minutes!
You will need:
patterned craft papers or wrapping paper in various different designs and colours
a larger piece of card
a medium sized frame large enough to contain all of the handprints
scissors & glue
To make the card or framed art, simply trace around one hand from each child in the family onto the patterned papers, and cut them out. Use a different pattern/ colour for each hand so that they are contrasting when placed together.
Then arrange them into a flower shape on a folded piece of card and have a child draw the stem and leaves and write inside.
Or arrange them as a flower or in size order onto a plain piece of card and simply frame it with the date added. You could also get each child to write their name underneath their own hand too.
That’s it! So quick and easy and looks really effective, both as a Father’s day card and as art on the wall.
