Toddler Christmas Tree Hands Artwork

I saw this cute pin on pinterest on using your little one's hands to make a Christmas tree on canvas. Thought it would be a great Christmas decor craft to display in the future.



We started off with a blank canvas that I bought on sale at Hobby Lobby. I got our Crayola hand paints and we created our background first. I wanted kind of have a sunset look ombre style. Ha ha! I know...a little much, but it would add some much character to it. So I squirted yellow and red on the canvas and Jett mixed all the colors on the canvass. He loved this part. He got to spread it all over the canvas. We let that dry for a day and went on to make the tree.

Teacher or Parent Candy Bar card

For J's daycare provider birthday I wanted to get her something personalized from Jett. I didn't have any ideas at the time nothing really screamed this is the gift on pinterest.

I had to go to 2 different ones (CVS & Walgreens). I found most of the stuff I needed from Walgreens. I also picked up my poster board from there too.
