The Hand Prints Poem Framed


Card Stalk Paper


It is so much fun to dip our little one's hands in paint and plop it on everything. It never gets old. I suggest for this home made gift, you buy the frame first. That way you can compliment or match the colors of the paint that you choose for their hand print to the frame. If your child is especially wiggly, and you are afraid to mess up the creation by him or her moving, use this tip. Simply try doing his hand print on regular paper the color of your project. Then, when you get it right, you can cut the hand print out and paste it to the actual project. I have done this several times and it looks just as good. You could even use a different color paper if you want it extra colorful or are going with a series of colors for the right look.

For a fancier look, try using a really nice black or brass frame and use a bold color like black to do their hand prints. You can also experiment with different kinds of paper. You can print the poem on several sheets to start in case you have a hard time getting the hand print just write. You could also do it only once and use the extra paper tip. Here is the poem.

Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls
But every day I grow a bit
And I'll be big someday
Then all those tiny finger prints
Will all be washed away.
So here's a print of my two hands
To help you recall
Just how my hands looked
When they were very small.
