Jesus- Christmas handprint craft.

The other day the kids wanted to do a craft while we were watching my little niece. I love the handprint crafts just because they are so easy, simple and adorable of course. There is none I love more than the one of baby Jesus. I mean, He is the reason for the season after all. Here is our take on the idea and turning it into an ornament or decoration to hang on the wall. Super cute!! Happy Holidays to all.

Today in the town of David
a Savior has been born to you:
he is Christ the Lord.
~ Luke 2:11

How to:
1. Paint the childs hand with brown paint. We used kids acrylic or crayola paint. Get it nice and covered.
2. Place their hand as still and straight as you can on the paper. We ended up having to do two hands each for wiggly fingers. 
3. Let that dry for a bit. 
4. Go over the top of the hand with yellow paint or dark yellow pencil to make it look like hay. 
5. Cut out a circle - about 3/4 of an inch wide in cream, tan, or light brown for the head.
6. Cut out an oval shaped body in white.
7. Glue the body down and then the head on top of the body. When done with that place the eyes and mouth with marker. 
8. We then cut out around the hand, hole punched it, put a string and wrote "Jesus loves....." 
9. Enjoy! 



Here are a few past Christmas projects from the old website that is no longer up and running...
