Day 14: Handprint Calendar Gift
I have been painting ALOT of hands lately! We have been working on our Handprint Calendars as gifts.
Not only am I making 4 for my little C to give grandparents and great-grands... I am also making 8 complete handprint calendars with the students in my preschool class as gifts for thier parents.
We are creating desktop handprint calendars. I will be posting pictures when these little jewels are put together...but here is a little info...
I used the long construction paper and folded it half. Then folded in two flaps on each end, each flap being 1.5 inches or so. This is the base of the desktop calendar. I plan on laminating for durability. On the left side of the base I will have the calendar in monthly form. I will attach all 12 in order with brads and the recipent will tear off each month when it is done. Then, on the right side of the base we will have our handprint for each month. They will be attached at the top with rings (so that they can be flipped to the back).
Pictures will be added- promise!
Here are the handprints we created for each month:

**You can buy the $1 calendars at Michaels hobby store that are made for kids to create thier own art for each month. We are doing this for a couple of our handprint calendars. It is great because the calendar is already ready for you!**
