Hands and Feet Angels

Hands and Feet angels

We made these a couple of years ago. They were a gift for the Grandparents and Great-Grandparents. I think this craft is a great one, especially if you don't live near family. They can see the size of your kids hands and feet. Such a nice idea. Esther and Ellamay decorated these with their favourite (and mine) glitter glue and some adhesive ribbon. We might have to try something like this again this year. Not only are they bigger :-) they are now quite handy on the scissors, so they could cut out their own. 

There is a little poem on the back too. 

This little angel is special you see;
Because she is a part of me.
Her wings are my hands,
Her body my feet,
And on the tree she'll look very sweet.

I kept some that Esther and Ellamay made in their scrapbooks. Oh. I could put more in so we could compare the sizes of their hands and feet couldn't I? I think I have just talked myself into making these again this year with all three kids. :-) Find this craft from here.
