Last year I decided to start making some homemade gifts with my babies help. Those gifts were loved so much more that those big expense gifts that we bought at the stores. So this year I decided I was going to make a lot of my gifts this year myself. The loving hands is to give to love one to give them something for when that loved one isn’t able to be there. Both of my parents live far away since we are in the military I wanted to give them a little piece of their granddaughter to help them smile when we are not around. The message of the loving hand is, This special heart I give to you because you love me and I love you, The heart is you, the hand is me, it shows we are a family. If your trying to get a babies or a toddlers hand print we found it works better if you have another person there to help. If your child’s hand print gets messed up you can always paint the canvas the same color as the hand. I just was introduced to paint pens they are get because they are a felt tip pen that is filled with paint to help you write neatly.
