I saw it online somewhere but changed it a bit. You're supposed to use black paint and paint the child's hand to create the handprint...there was no way that was going to happen! So I just traced her hand with a pencil then went over it with a marker and colored it in. Ok so I confess that I did 99.5% of the work, but the child is obsessed with these! She wants to look at them constantly which is so cute!
