Who doesn’t like handprint gifts? If you are like most American families, money is tight around the holidays and you have no idea what to give that is meaningful and heartfelt. I racked my brain this year trying to come up with something awesome for the kids to do for the grandparents (spoiler alert!) to give for Christmas. I turned to my friends at Oriental Trading and came across several cool and inexpensive gift ideas!
Oriental Trading sent me two hand print craft kits to try out and share on my blog. You might not know it, but Oriental Trading not only has party supplies, but they also carry a huge selection of craft kits, scrapbooking supplies, beading supplies, and wedding supplies. The cool thing is, no matter what the age group, you can find a craft that meets your needs! I thought it would be neat to do something with hand prints, so I ordered the Handprint Peppermint Keepsake Craft Kit and the Jesus in the Manager Handprint Craft. Both of these provided 12 projects each and were under $20! Plus, both kits come with everything you need, except glue for the Peppermint Keepscake Craft. How can you beat that?!

We used an old magazine to put the paint on. The paint is washable, so no worries there. To protect the table, we used the backside of a plastic place mat.
