For the grandmas' gifts on mothers day we went the traditional route - a handprint craft.
These were inspired by this "tin ceiling tile craft" I did with my VBS kids last summer.
Our Supplies: cardboard (trimmed to size/shape preference), pencil, tacky glue, heavy duty aluminum foil, shoe polish, tissues, packing tape, scissors, and ribbon.
Step #1: use pencil to trace hand onto cardboard
Step #2: cover hand prints with tacky glue.
|i also had the children add their initials. the boys also added claws - i almost|
said 'no' but figured their grandmas would get a kick out of it.
Step #3: once the glue has completely dried, cover cardboard with foil and use eraser end of pencil to press foil around glue lines.
Step #4: smear shoe polish on top of foil. use a tissue to remove any excess polish.
|i found this shoe polish (in a pack of 3) at dollar tree|
Step #5: if you wish to hang your tile, cut a piece ribbon, fold it into a loop and secure with packaging tape. you may also want to use the tape to secure the ends of the foil.
