Hand Print Magnets

Well, if you've looked at my blog AT ALL before now, you may have noticed that I'm... well... shall we say... OBSESSED with my little ones tiny hands?!  And feet.  I am, I know, it's an odd addiction.  But they are growing so quickly, and I just love having so many little reminders of those tiny fingers and toes!  So here is another hand print project! 

Gator is always making something wonderful for us to display on our refrigerator door, so I felt that she needed her own special magnets! 

These took maybe 30 minutes to make, including drying time for the paint.  Super simple, which is important for me lately, because we've been crazy busy! 

We painted Gators hands with white craft paint, and stamped them both on to blue card stock paper.  After the paint dried, I wrote on her name on the left hand and "work" on the right with black Sharpie marker. 

I then cut out each hand print, and glued a square of magnet on the back of each hand. 

Gator loves having her own special magnets.  They are always in use at our house, and a set is always being used at Grandma and Papa's as well! 

Looking for a cheap and easy (but meaningful) gift for grandparents living far away??  Why not send them a set of hand print magnets with a cute letter telling them that these hands will be used to hold the items they receive in their "Art of the Month" club!!  Each month, have your little one(s) draw, color, glue, etc something special just for them, and send it off!  They will love having something so special each month, and you will love how easy it is to stay connected and let them know they are thought of!  Include a monthly picture for added smiles!
