Handprint Calendar

I make these handprint calendars for my parents every year. I am sorry I am sharing this idea so late, but it took me awhile to find the pictures. If you have questions about how to put them together, just let me know.



















using light blue for the snowflake instead of dark blue



using yellow for the sun instead of orange



another idea for March...

Absolutely love this idea! Not only will I be using it with my students, I think this is what my own daughters will be making for grandparents too! Thanks so much for sharing like you do.

I love handprint art. I do similar activities throughout the year. I had never thought of turning it into a calendar. When do you give them to the parents? Do you do all the activities at one time or once a month?

I usually start with painting at the end of November or early December. I try to do a couple each day. I usually do them first thing in the morning. Once I have gotten them all done, we spend a few days adding the crayon details to them. Then I start to work on the assembly part. I have the kids wrap them and give them to their parents for Christmas.
