20 Handprint Keepsakes You’ll Actually Want to Keep

By Just Heather |

When my oldest was about 4, she left a perfect, greasy handprint on my parents’ front window. My mom cleaned around it for months, if not longer. She just couldn’t bear to erase that fleeting moment frozen in dirt time.

While handprints on the furniture, window, and walls may make me crazy, I do love to capture their size. Handprint projects are fun and adorable, but they get tucked away for another time. Our home decor may not be very sophisticated, but construction paper isn’t quite my style.

Here are 20 handprint keepsakes I would actually display:

Wall Gallery

I love the idea of creating a wall gallery of the girls' handprints. This set was done with a kit, but you can pick up small canvas squares at the craft store, too.
