Keeping in the spirit of the holidays, if you are looking for a fun and easy holiday activity to do with the kids, this one is great. I made these last year with the twins I nanny, and they had a lot of fun. This was probably one of the first handprint activities we attempted, so it is a little messy, but they are sure pro’s now!
If you do a quick search on pinterest for “Handprint (insert holiday there)” you will find 100′s of really fun ideas.
All you need for this is finger paint, paper or canvas (we used thicker paper for painting), glitter paint (optional), and tiny hands!
Sorry the pictures aren’t the best….phone cameras are not ideal!
What fun kid’s activities have you done this holiday season?
Also, I wanted to share this story about a young boy and his last big wish….
Dalton Dingus is a 9-year-old boy from Salyersville, KY, living with stage 4 cystic fibrosis.
He has been sent home because there is nothing else doctors can do. They have only given him a couple of weeks to live. He told his mom he is ready to go because he is tired. He wants to beat the Guinness World Record for the most Christmas Cards. The record is 35,000.
You can help Dalton break the record by sending him a card at the following address:
Just a card, a 45 cent stamp, and a little of your time to make his Christmas wish come true.
H.C. 62 Box 1249
Salyersville, KY 41465
Thank you to Laura at Close Families for sharing this with us.
