This “My Hands” poem has been around for ages. I’m not sure who the original author is, but you’ve probably made it when you were in preschool! Why change a great thing? They’re sure to be a big hit with the parents and the kids will love making them! Whenever, my kids made handprint crafts in school, they’d come home with huge smiles and say, “This is going to make you cry!!!!!!” and of course they did! This template has small children’s handprints along the border for an added effect.

Notecards from Children’s Drawings Make Great Gifts
These are fun gifts for your children to make to bring home for the parents or to give as gifts. My children have made and brought these home different times of the year and I LOVE receiving them.. Have the children draw pictures inside of the frame throughout the month when you have some free time. At the end of the month have them fold the drawings into cards, wrap with cellophane paper, and tie with a decorative ribbon. They will be so proud!
I love taking things that are old and turning them into something that is gorgeous! I was shopping at a thrift store the other day and noticed that they had an incomplete china set on sale for $1.50. Yes…there were 18 pieces in the set for $1.50. So I took the set home and made a dessert stand out of some of the pieces.
