Handprint Easter Craft (Tuesday Talk)

Today I thought I'd share a craft that I started last week, but finished over the weekend.

As I've mentioned plenty of times, I love making handprint crafts with the kids. They are so cute and become a keepsake as well. I love how little their hands are and they actually love doing it.

The reason this project was a two part series was b/c I started with a blank white canvas. I realized that I needed to paint it purple before the kids could start helping. And it took multiple coats to get it the color I wanted.

Once it was the right color and all dry, the kids could start with their hands.

I used both sets of each of their hands to make the cross. And I used the time we were painting to discuss the cross and what it meant at Easter. I love hearing my 7 year old explain things to my 3 year old.

And while the final product did have a few imperfections, I thought it turned out perfectly!

As always, I'm linking up with Keri, Jessica, Katie, and many more for Tuesday Talk.
