Art Project: [These hands, big and small..]

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

For Father's Day, I thought it was time we started with some homemade gifts. Along with what I already had an idea for, searched Pinterest and came up with a little cheesy something to make for the Mr. While he was gone on a work trip, it was perfect timing to have some evenings to get it all together; we picked up some supplies and got T excited for the 'art project'.
We used these brasswood round plaques, washable kids paint, and in different colors, layered our hand prints on the wood. Easy peasy, well besides getting an 8 month old to lay her hand flat..

T had SO MUCH fun playing with the paint after we did his hand print, he kept asking for the rest of the week if we could do another 'art project'. We will definitely be breaking out the paint again soon!!
We finished the plaques with 'These hands, big and small.. Love YOU most of all.'


  1. Oh! This is so sweet! What a cute idea to do this on a wood slice. So manly and rustic. Love it!

  2. What a great idea!!! Such a special keepsake that he will cherish for years. I try to do things like this sometimes but Seth is always here so it's so hard to sneak around unless he's in the shower or something lol. Good timing with him being out of town :)
