Grandparents are total suckers for a cute handmade gift from their darling grandkids over the holidays- and we love it! Making a keepsake is such a fun way to create memories, and to spend some quality time together in the creative process! Here's a round-up of five fun ideas to try.
1. Handprint Christmas Tree Napkins by Glued to My Crafts
We love anything handprint because it's so much fun pulling out the keepsakes over the years and reminiscing about the tiny baby hands! These simple DIY napkins involve using a handprint to make a Christmas tree which your littles can then decorate. Cute!
2. Handprint Santa Ornaments by Messy Little Monsters
This one definitely requires a little more effort, but look at those adorable ornaments! You can make these using salt dough and acrylic paint. Our kids love being hands on with salt dough! We can't wait to make these and see them hanging on the grandparents' trees!
3. Handprint Christmas Wreath by My Name is Snickerdoodle
If you want to avoid getting messy with paint, this darling handprint wreath is the perfect option. If you're a big family it could be really fun to alternate your kids' handprints around the wrath too! What grandparents wouldn't want to proudly display this?!
4. Handprint Reindeer Photo Frame by The Educators' Spin On It
Made using a cheap wooden photo frame and a few affordable craft supplies, this festive frame is adorable! Place a picture of your kids and their grandparents in the frame and you have the perfect keepsake! Such a fun and personal gift.
5. Handprint Snowman Ornament by She Knows
Another great DIY ornament that can hang proudly on the grandparents' tree for years to come. We love how older kids can also decorate the snowmen, adding their own personality to the ornament.
We hope you are feeling inspired to get creative with your kids' handprints! Grandparents will be over the moon with a gift that represents so much creativity, time and effort.
