  • Paper
  • Scissors

Directions

  1. Place your child's hand and arm on a piece of paper and trace around it.
  2. Cut the tracing out of paper and have your child decorate it with crayons, markers, stickers, glitter, and so on.
  3. Be sure to write your child's name and age or date on the back.
  4. Cover with clear contact paper and use for a bookmark.
