‘Tis the season to be merry. Tra-la-la-laaaa. Tra-la-la-laaaaaa. Oh yes, I am slowly (but surely!) getting into the Christmas spirit! Love this time of year, I love the whole build up. The baking of cookies, the selecting of gifts, the MAKING of gifts with the kids, the music and all the festivities. If you are looking for some fun Christmas crafts to do with the kids, that also double up nicely as Christmas Keepsakes or Christmas Ornaments to keep or to give, check out these wonderful Christmas Handprint Crafts. There are also some cheeky footprints and fingerprints thrown in for good measure. There is something super special about handprint crafts, especially whilst their little hands and feet are still tiny.. and believe you me, the “tiny phase” does not last long!
I think my personal favourite would have to be the tiny footprint mistle toes, as well as the fabulous Santa saltdough ornaments! But they are all gorgeous and you simply have to find the one for you!
Don’t forget we still have a wonderful Animal Handprint A-Z for you to check out – a super fun way to write your child’s name. Great as a “door room plaque” or bedroom art!
