Scrapbook Your Child's Handprints - From Child


If you are an Aunt, God Parent, dear friend, etc. you can make a delightful scrapbooking page or framed print as gift for mom or dad from their child.

Child's Left Handprint
(left side top of paper - fingertips up)

(center poem)
Dear Mom (Dad, Auntie, etc.)

Sometimes you get discouraged
because I am so small
and I sometimes leave my fingerprints
on furniture and walls.

But everyday I am growing --
I'll be grown up someday --
and all those tiny handprints
will surely fade away.

So here's a final handprint
just so you can recall
exactly how my fingers looked
when I was very small.

Love, (child's name)
(date)

Child's Right Handprint
(right side bottom of paper - fingertips up)

To make this really special for mom or dad, let the child decorate around the prose after handprints have been made and are completely dry. Use buttons, scraps of fabric, macaroni, etc.

To make these handprint crafted items a full set, see Scrapbook Your Child's Handprints - From Parent in Related Links. Also, although you can use any poem for this, the one given seems so right for this very sweet keepsake.

This is not a just for mommy gift, it is for any parental figure or loved one who has dealt with those tiny handprints; "Don't touch honey, I just cleaned that...." or "I see little fingerprints, did you do that"? Remember, the very things that make you groan are the ones that will bring a pensive smile to your face 20 years from now.

Recommended book:
For ideas, go to your local library and visit the chidrens section or talk to your librarian who will point you to the right section, or see Crafting Fun: 101 Things to Make and Do with Kids, available from Amazon.
