Well I was thinking of Valentine’s day and although this idea is not ground breaking, I think its a great, easy DIY for anyone. Have the kiddo lay down on a piece of paper and trace their hands and arms (join the two sections where the torso falls) and then cut out. Decorate as you wish!
A good craft to send Grandma/Grandpa/Aunts/Uncles a hug in the mail or even for someone right at home. The big roll of ikea paper works great or you could use wrapping paper. It’s so sweet to see the little hands. Fun fact, one’s arm span equals one’s height.
