Valentine's day!!! It is time to celebrate!

Handprint Poem

Difficulty: Easy

This is a gift for an adult to make with a young child. It's a poem with a handprint and an optional photo of the baby/preschooler.

What you'll need:

  • Small child in play clothing.
  • Print out of handprint poem (make extra copies).
  • Optional small photo of child.
  • Water based paints - finger paints or tempera paints.
  • Bowl or something to hold the paint.
  • Brush or sponge to apply paint to child's hand.
  • Paper towels or some other way to do a quick cleanup!

How to make it:

Here's the poem for you to copy, format and print in your favorite word processor, or you can print out this version :
    Sometimes you get discouraged
    Because I am so small
    And always leave my fingerprints
    On furniture and walls
    But every day I'm growing --
    I'll be grown some day
    And all those tiny handprints
    Will surely fade away
    So here's a little handprint
    Just so you can recall
    Exactly how my fingers looked
    When I was very small
    Put a date here
    Love, put child's name here

What to do:
  1. Print the poem (make extra copies).
  2. Apply the paint to the child's hand, then press their hand to the paper near the poem. This might take several attempts to get a good print, patience is the key.
  3. Clean that little hand, before you get handprinted, too!
  4. Personalize with the date and name (if it isn't already).
  5. Let dry, then glue on a photo, if desired.
