Mommy & Me Book: Handprint ABCs

I am in LOVE with handprint art. It captures those sweet little hands in a way that simply melts my heart! Since I have become a Pinterest addict, I have pinned a ton of really cute handprint activities and about 9 months ago I thought I should start doing some of them. Yes people- the book that you are about to see took me 9 months to finish. Why? Well let’s just say it got lost in the never ending pile of things to do. 🙂

This is a simple run down: Boo chose the letter she wanted to work on and the object that she wanted to make that started with that letter. Sometimes we looked through my handprint art pinterest board, or websites like Red Ted Art (love her creative ideas!!!!). Other times my daughter came up with original ideas- like y is for yellow jackets. I bought a whole bunch of blank books from Bare Books awhile ago. They are very well made and sturdy, just like a real book. While having a prebound book had its problems (like having to leave the book open while the paint was drying) I am very happy with the final product.

Enjoy! Happy Teaching!!

    I really like your hand and footprint art it’s really cool! I am definitely going to have to give them a go one day. I’m a trainee teacher so I am trying to gather some ideas before I graduate next year.

    It would be great if you could hop along to my blog too

    I love this! I am an education student right now and I have to write and illustrate my own children’s book. Would you mind if I use some of your ideas? I won’t copy them exactly, but they would definitely give me some great ideas of my own! If not, totally fine. Thank you for sharing!
