- Colored paper (green, red, and brown)
- Stickers (for decorations, optional)
1) Trace and cut out several handprints. I used four of my daughter’s handprints and four of my son’s handprints.
2) Paste together on red paper to form a tree. Cut out a star to put on top (I traced the shape from a cookie cutter) and a brown rectangle to be the stump. You could also cut out presents from other colors of paper.

I love this!
I did something like this for Thanksgiving this year with the kids… using their feet for the turkey’s body and the hands for the feathers in back. Pasting on googley eyes was their favorite part. Audrey made one with about 20 goggley eyes on it1 We loved this outer-space turkey. :)
That would be a cute turkey!
Oh, that’s so clever! I can absolutely do that with my daughter! I’m not really crafty, so easy stuff like that really makes me excited :)
Have a merry Christmas!
You always have such great activities… I’m so glad I am following your blog! :-)>>Valerie>< HREF="http://www.frugalfamilyfunblog.com" REL="nofollow">Frugal Family Fun Blog<>>Good times on a budget!
I am loving your handprint activities. It’s a cool way for kids to feel more involved even if they are too little to trace or cut neatly.
