Parenting Christmas Tips & Tricks No #4 Hand Printed Wreaths

I have committed to posting a Parenting Tips and Tricks to my lovely readers every day up till Christmas.  If you want to know how and why this idea started  you can track back   to Tips and Tricks No #1

Today’s Tip & Trick is making your own hand painted or stencilled Christmas Wreaths – literally with your child’s own hands – well images of them!

For the painted prints:

  • Put some green finger paint (available from craft shops or ELC) on a plate and let your child splodge their hand in it.
  • Pencil a circle on paper or card
  • Get your child to make prints around the circle, fingers outwards
  • Using red finger paint you could add a red bow
  • Sprinkle with glitter if you like

  • You will need either green paper/card or get your child to paint the card/paper green and when dry …
  • Draw around your child’s hand
  • Cut out carefully and use this to stencil more hands to cut out
  • Arrange in a circle to make a wreath
  • Apply glue and add glitter, stars and a bow if you wish
