As my kids get older, the grandparents and I treasure the handmade crafts, and those using their fingerprints, handprints, and footprints more and more.

They grow up so fast, and these are such an irreplaceable way to remember their childhood.

You can document their growth, and make precious memories with them, while working on craft projects together.

It also gives the kids a sense of pride to know that they made something so special that they can gift to a loved one.

Most of the supplies required are things you likely already have around the house, if you regularly do craft projects with your kids, so it should be a pretty inexpensive project.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Active Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • Pink Construction Paper
  • Glue
  • White Paper
  • Markers
  • Glitter Glue
  • Pencil
  • Photo Frame


  • Scissors


Fold a piece of pink construction paper in half sideways.

Have your child put his/her hand down on the paper at the fold.

The thumb and first finger should touch the fold.

Trace their hand.

Carefully cut along the pencil mark.

Open up the hands, glue onto the white paper, decorate as desired!


Take care when cutting out the hand! I have done this a million times and STILL at least once, cut through the fold. If you cut through the fold, you end up with 2 handprints not attached.

We framed this and gifted it to grandma.

It cost less than $5 total, including the frame I picked up at a yard sale!

We already had many of the required materials on hand, and the cost for them originally was very low.

If you regularly do craft projects with kids (or plan to), most of these items can be purchased in bulk (paper), or you can stock up on glue, pencils, markers, etc during back to school sales for one dollar or less.

The most expensive item was the frame, and I had a very nice quality frame on hand that I got recently at a yard sale for just $3.
