While it's true that Mother's Day has passed, these paper handprint gifts Jackie and her son's made for their grandmother are a simple and sweet idea anytime of the year (Father's Day perhaps?).

There are days when I hold my son's hand and stare at it in awe: it's so small, yet he's learning to do so many things from drawing with crayons to holding his own ice cream cone. So freezing his hand in time, in a sense, is a really sweet way to commemorate these moments of reflection.

The instructions are rather simple so even parents who consider themselves "non-crafty" will have no problem with this project. Jackie gives a quick run-down of how to make these handprint gifts on her blog Avocado & Papaya.

Thanks Jackie!
