This Christmas, the kids and I made these cute handprint gifts for my parents and for Jeremy. We had a great adventure making them, we started out one afternoon and we figured out the color scheme and what to put on each frame. Sage and Grace were so excited, we made their handprints pretty quickly on each frame and then it was Zoe's turn.
I am not sure if I ever realized that Zoe likes to keep her hands in fists...always! We tried quite a few times and every time we had the paint on her hands...squish. We decided to get Zoe to sleep so I rocked her in the sling. We thought for sure once she was asleep we could do it. Now keep in mind that not only did we have to get one perfect handprint but four of them!
Sleeping did not help. After several hours, lots of attempts, paint everywhere and a frustrated mom, I told the kids we would have to give up and put it all away before dad came home. They kept saying mom, don't give up, you can't give up...we need the wonder pets, they don't give up!
Fast forward to a new day, we decided our best bet was to try Zoe's feet. Let's just say we were lucky to get her little piggies because she curls up her toes too!
