You’ll need:

  • Paint for your little one’s hands
  • Paper, both plain and patterned
  • Cellotape
  • Double-sided tape and scissors

1. Cover your child’s hand in paint.

2. Stamp hand prints onto a plain piece of paper. Allow to dry.

3. Assist your child in cutting out their hand prints.

4. Cut a long strip of colored paper the same width as your child’s palm.

5. Use cellotape to attach the handprints to the strip of colored paper.

6. Attach a piece of double-sided tape to the underside of one hand.

7. Give someone a special hug by securing the band around their arm.
