Here’s how to make those painty presents even more special:

  1. Mix It Up: Use different colors for each handprint. Rainbow hands, anyone?
  2. Glitter It On: A little glitter never hurt anybody. Sprinkle some sparkle for that extra wow factor.
  3. Add Accents: Use markers or stickers to add eyes, antennae, or stems to turn those prints into critters or flowers.
  4. Frame It: Nothing says “masterpiece” like a good frame. Frame those prints for a gift that keeps on giving.
