Toddler Tuesday – Handprint Calendar December 20, 2011

Filed under: Arts & Crafts,Christmas,Toddler Tuesday — The Vegetarian Mom @ 12:02 am

I saw this idea on Pinterest and thought it would make an excellent gift for the grandparents. Being me, I waited until the very last minute to start it. I was rushing and trying to get all of the pictures done over the span of two nights. In the process, I discovered that I must have one of the only children in the world who hates to paint. It was like pulling teeth to get him to cooperate. Bribery. That’s about all that worked.



Unfortunately, I failed to take a picture of the final product. I was pleased with it though! I ended up using one 12×12 piece of scrapbook paper for each month. I printed off monthly calendars and used the poems from Little Giraffes.  There are great instructions over there!  I added the calendar, poem, and handprint picture to one sheet of paper and then placed them all with a cover sheet in a 12×12 frame.  Grandma will be able to rotate through them over the course of the year.



Easy (ha!).  Cute.  Grandma loved it.  If your kid loves to paint, go for it.  It’ll be great!  If your kid is like mine, make sure you have lots of iced animal crackers on standby.
