I try to share a lot of process, meaningful art activities for kids in this space. But sometimes? Sometimes I go for the cute. The super cute, keepsake worthy crafts that I adore pulling out each and every year. Just like today with this list of Christmas handprint art.
And goodness are there some adorable Christmas handprint art ideas! Time to get those little hands nice and messy to create some art that will be cherished for the years to come.
It is so hard to decide on which ones we will be doing this year. The reindeer? The salt dough imprints? Those wreaths? Goodness we are going to be busy!
