Wash Your Hands

Hand print

Throwback to a craft we made several years ago for our bathroom.  I wanted to make a craft with hand prints and couldn't think of one.  While talking to my sister, she told me of a cute bathroom she visited in a restaurant.  On the walls they had painted "Please Wash Your Hands" and the entire wall was covered with hand prints.  Light bulb moment, that would be super cute on a board with our kids hand prints.  I loved it so much, I made one for both bathrooms.

Wash your hands

I just cut board to fit the spot I wanted to display the hand prints. 

 Painted the boards to match the bathroom. 

 I measured each child's hand to make sure the spot was big enough. 

 I used a Sizzix die cutting machine to cut out the words and mod podged them on.  You could even use vinyl lettering for this.  I just tried to make the saying match the number of kids or you could do all the family members.

  I painted the kids hand with a sponge brush, and carefully applied it to the board.  If you are worried the hand print will get messed up, you could always make a few on card stock and mod podge your favorite, or scan it into your computer and cut it out in vinyl.

I hot glued ribbon on the back to hang it.

Would make a great mother's, Father's, or grandparent's gift.
