Hello, summer! Let’s celebrate with a throwback of handprint and footprint art projects from when Carter was smaller. I feel like we were just sitting at the kitchen counter making these yesterday. Time flies!
As always, I suggest using ink pads instead of paint because the ink really shows the fine details and is less likely to smear. For the first year or so, footprints are much easier to capture because babies tend to close their hands in to fists instead of prints. After that, handprints can be captured just as easily.
It’s difficult to see the yellow in the sun picture, but we used Carter’s feet in orange and then added extra sun rays in yellow with his hands.
If your kiddos (or you!) are feeling crafty, you can draw and letter these yourselves. Sometimes we also cut paper shapes and glue them on instead of printing the designs. Since Carter was one and two here, I opted to use printables instead. That’s all he had the attention span for. 😉
You can visit my design shop and grab the templates for yourself. They aren’t personalized with a date so you can use them over and over as many times as needed at home or school.
