With toddler school officially underway, I found some pin-spiration for a First Day craft.
Yep, I’m totally one of those sentimental moms who love a good hand/footprint craft. With my Kindergartners I found any excuse I could to send home a handprint card, so I really wouldn’t expect any less of myself to document the growth of my own children in any other way.
Copeland loves when I paint his hands. He sits so patiently with wide-eyed wonder as I color his hand with the cool wet paint. Not once has he gotten it on his clothes, but I of course recommend de-clothing your children and using washable paint…just in case. Also, paint only one hand at a time and baby wipes are the BEST at removing paint from little hands.
His sweet handprints are now adorning our refrigerator. The first of many, I am sure.
We only have one week behind us in Toddler School, and I can already tell the sweet memories we are making together will last a lifetime. Having the one-on-one time together has been good for both of our hearts.
Here is my boy on his first day of our homeschool/preschool.
Son, I pray that you always know how cherished and loved you are. I praise God that I was chosen to be your Momma.
