Handprint placemat


(This idea came home from school.)

  • large sheet of coloured construction paper
  • smaller sheet of white paper (shown cut with scalloped edges)
  • marker / crayon for drawing on paper
  • fingerpaint for making handprint
  • glue
  • smocks to keep child and adults clean
  • clear contact paper or laminate large enough to cover the sheet of construction paper

  • write any messages ("Happy Mother's Day," "Happy Father's Day," "Happy Birthday" etc) on the white sheet of paper leaving room for two handprints
  • have child make handprints around text
  • glue white sheet of paper to construction paper
  • laminate
This is a terrific gift idea for a "special" occasion such as Mother's Day, Father's Day or a parent / grandparent birthday!
