Feasts and Festivals, From My Notebook

From my notebook…

A Hand-y Santa Banner

These are cute grandparent gifts, or they look sweet hanging on a door.

You will need red, skin-colored, and white paint. Paint your child’s fingers white, palm skin-colored, and the part closest to the wrist and the thumb red. Then have your child press her hand onto the center of a dark green square of felt. After it dries, add blue fingerprint eyes and a red fingerprint nose to Santa’s face, as well as fingerprint snowflakes around the Santa. Don’t forget a fingerprint white pom pom at the end of the thumb “hat”!

You can add a ribbon for hanging and use fabric paint to write a message or your child’s name and the year on your banner.
