This sweet little craft of mail-able hugs was so easy. The kids loved it. (They would honestly put paint-y hand prints on stuff everyday, if I let them.) I ripped this idea out of a Family Fun magazine from a few years ago (pre-Pinterest), and now I can’t find a link. Sorry. Annnyway……
These are perfect to send to Grandma and Grandpa as a “Thank You Card”. (Which is what we used them for.) But would also be a sweet for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or as a birthday card! Who doesn’t love getting mail. And most relatives would love to get a hug in the mail from far away babies. :)
What you need:
- little hands
What you do:
- Paint up those little hands. Stamp them on paper. Let them dry. Cut them out.
- Cut a length of ribbon (about the same length as the child’s arm span). Staple a hand to each end of the ribbon.
- Have your child write little notes on the backs of the hands.
- Send your hug to a lucky loved one!!
