family keepsake painting

Invite your kids to a special family activity and create a lovely handmade keepsake together!


 (you probably already have all these supplies at home)

  • (watercolor) paper
  • watercolor paint
  • black sharpie marker
  • (optional) frame.

How to:

  • Use a pencil to trace each family member’s handprint on the paper. (the handprints can overlap)
  • Use the sharpie marker to trace on top of the pencil and make the handprints more visible.
  • Use watercolors to paint the handprints. Get creative and have fun!
  • (optional) Place the painting in a frame.

Connection tip: Use this opportunity to talk to your kids about the things they love about your family. While everybody paints, invite each family member to share three things they like most about your family and their favorite family activities.

You can invite all family members to work together on one painting or invite every family member to create their own painting.

I hope you and your kids will enjoy this idea!
