- A framed canvas (or foam board, or poster board place in an frame)
- Green, yellow, and brown acrylic paint
Next, have your children help you paint the brown tree trunk at the bottom, and the yellow star at the top. We put our family name in one corner and the year in the other.
And finally, let it dry and then hang it on the wall!
Now, although this is a fairly easy and cheap project with minimal skill involved, I will say that holding a baby with a painted hand and trying to get him to place his hand properly on the canvas was quite a chore. In fact, just getting him to open his clenched fist was difficult. My shirt is currently sitting on my washing machine with stain remover sprayed on it. But, it was fun and it turned out really cute. I can't wait to look at this each Christmas and see how my children have grown over the years.
