A fun & quick 'handy' project
* Crayons or markers
* paper - two different colors
* craft glue
* decorative stickers or gems (optional)
This idea came from the Middlesex Library's storytime, with a little embellishment from me. If your child is old enough to draw, have them draw an outline of their hands or feet; otherwise, draw an outline or your child's hands. The outline would be best on white paper but the choice is yours.
Then cut out the hands.
Let your child decorate the hands. They can use paint or crayons or markers - or a little bit of everything.
If you've decided to use some kind of decorative gems or stickers, help your child apply them to the hands.
If you used paint to decorate, wait until it dries. Then take glue and apply the hands to the second sheet of paper, which will be your background.
And you're done!
