I am in love with handprint and footprint art. It is a great way to document how your children grow over time. We used handprints and footprints to make cute lobsters the other day.
Stamp their handprints and footprint onto the paper, making sure the footprint is in the bottom center of the paper.
Let the paint dry and “connect” the body to the claws with red marker.
Using a black marker, draw two lines and glue some googly eyes at the end of each.
Add some definition to the lobster’s body with black marker and you have a cute craft that you can keep as a reminder of how little your children once were.
How do you keep the learning going throughout the summer?

Sorry Debra. I should have clarified that. I used washable tempera paint.
