I would love to take credit for this super cute project.. but I cant. (wah wah) My sister in law saw this on pinterest and thought it would be a fun gift for the great grandparents. I do take credit for her pinterest addiction though. haha. Show me someone not addicted to pinterest and Ill show you someone who doesnt have a computer! Or internet.
We used all three grandkids hand prints each with a different color paint. It turned out adorable! Its pretty simple to figure out.. but I went picture crazy so enjoy the unnecessary tutorial.
Yellow, orange and blue paint
Paint the little ones hand and have them make a circle of hand prints, finger pointing out.
Ryley liked painting her own hands. We quickly moved from the canvas to plain paper because she really enjoyed making handprints.

William went next after the yellow had dried.
We went with orange over the yellow. Duh, right?
Will really liked the paint.. all over his body. He even tasted it. Just once though.
After the orange was dried we made a lighter yellowy orange to put on top.
Avery had to have GG and Pa help.. he was very squirmy.
Avery giving GG the side eye. Haha!
Ta – da!
A perfect gift for grandparents.. or mommas. 🙂
