One blue hand print from hubby and a burgundy one from me…
Let it dry… (doesn’t take too long for acrylic paint to dry)
Paint up A’s hand, remind her to hold very still and spread her fingers and not to move until I lift her hand off. Remind her again, then push down her hand. (she obeyed quite well)
Then the tricky part, getting a newborn’s handprint… ya, if you’ve ever tried you understand. They like to clench their little fists and are surprisingly strong. I was quite successful when A was a baby and a little less so this time but oh well.
Hubby helped by holding G, we tried while he was asleep but when the cold paint touched his hand….well he obviously woke up, but still he did pretty well. Not the best hand print ever but it will do.
(sorry for the crummy pictures, it’s dark out so my natural light is gone)
