Grandparent's Day is this Sunday!!!
Even with all the hoopla surrounding Mother's day and Father's day, Grandparent's day has slipped by uncelebrated in our family for the last 2 years.
Which is all the years since I had kids.
It's not that I don't appreciate my kid's grandparents-- I do!!! They've been invaluable to us, especially during these crazy two under two years! It's not an easy job-- they've put in long hours wiping noses and changing diapers. So, I wanted to make them something special this year.
I know that you already have something lined up, but just in case, I've created a set of printable handprint trees. There is one for Grandma's, Grandpa's and one for 'Grandparents'. Click to read the handprint tutorial and to get the free Granparent's day Printable.
This is an easy craft- I'm sure we all did a variation of this when we were young. I printed the pages on regular typing paper.
I often have to modify crafts for my two toddlers. If you have older kids, they can probably do this without much help.
I wanted the tree to look nice, so I masked off the part with the quote and date with a spare peice of paper.
I painted the kiddos hands different colors and 'helped' them make hand prints. We used washable finger paint, but I think regular old acrylic paint would work even better.
And done! Some of the hand prints could be a bit clearer, but I guess it's part of the charm.
