Craft Corner: Grandparents' Day Hug

👵👴 A Cute Craft for Grandparents Day (second Sunday of September)

By Debbie duHadway September 4, 2013

If your family is like mine, you are scattered across the miles. Help your children make "hugs" to send to your special loved ones. Of course this also could be slipped into the mailbox even if they live nearby!

What You Need:

  • Washable paint
  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon the length of your child's arm span
  • Tape

What You Do:

  1. Paint your child's hands and make handprints on the paper. You can also trace your child's hands and then paint the paper.
  2. Let dry; cut them out.
  3. Attach the hands to the ends of the ribbon.
  4. Mail to your grandparents with a note saying "Hugs coming your way! Happy Grandparents Day!"
