Hand Print Canvases

I'm not a really big artsy person, but when I ran across this idea on Pinterest, I knew I wanted to do it.  I picked up a cheap 3-pack of flat canvases in the craft section at Wal*Mart. If I were to do this again, I would pick up the ones with more depth like in The Mom in Madison.

First, I let the boys draw and color in their hands, names, and ages with oil pastel crayons.  Then they used water colors to paint around (and over) their handprint.   Bringing out the paints was a nice change of pace for our house. :)
