A few weeks ago (well over a month ago already) it was my mom’s and my mother-in-law’s birthday. Their birthdays even happen to be on the same day! I wanted to make something special for each of them with my 8 month old son. Art, however, can be tricky with a baby. This craft is a little messy, but well worth it!
To make this fun and colorful card, start with painters tape. I like the green frog tape the best. I have found that masking tape is too sticky and will take off part of the card stock when you take the tape off. Stick a few rows of tape together and trace and cut out your pattern. I used my son’s hand-print, but you could use other patterns too.
Next, place it on the card stock.
Then, let your child add some color! (Toddler tip: If your child still likes to put everything in their mouth, have them suck on a pacifier while they paint)
Then, when the paint is dry, peel off the tape and decorate as you wish.
