There is just something about those adorable little hand prints and foot prints. I just can’t resist them! This year, I decided to make calendars for each of the day care kids to give to their parents as a Christmas gift. I scooped up some super cute calendars at Michael’s for $1 each and we’ve been working on filling in the pages a little bit at a time.
Of course, you can complete the project all in one day, but if you’ve got ticklish kids, it might be a little difficult!
Whatever you decide, working on the calendar is a great time to review days of the week as well as months and seasons.
Here’s what we created:
Beware of ticklish feet!
I decided to try a stamp pad with this one because it dries so much faster and is way less messy. However, the color isn’t nearly as bold so I think we’ll go back to paint.
Since Easter is in March next year, I thought it would be appropriate to do a tape-resist cross (get the full directions here). It’s super simple and a great reminder about what Easter is all about!
I think this is the project that ignited my whole hand print craze. I saw it on Pinterest and was hooked!
This is the perfect gift for a Mother all month long!
This is one isn’t on our calendar yet, but you may remember our Fish shirt from June. Same idea!
For us, the flag looked a little too complicated for toddlers, so we did a glitter fireworks instead!
This one I just love! Could it BEEE any cuter?
I absolutely love this rocket idea I spotted over at “That’s Adorable” via Pinterest.
We did this one during our O is for Owl week. I spotted the idea over at Meet the Dubiens, one of my favorite blogs.
Naturally, we did a Turkey for Thanksgiving!
December: Christmas Tree
I also spotted a few other cute December ideas after we had done this, like this adorable Wise Men on camels!
