Step 1: Gather Supplies

Step 2: Paint the Child's Hand

This only requires a light coat, too much will cause the hand print to not turn out on the paper.

Step 3: Place Their Hand on the Paper

The child's hand needs to be placed flat on the paper for about 5 seconds

Step 4: Add Glitter

This part is tricky, mainly because you have a toddler with wet paint on their hand and a drying paper. This step is optional.

Step 5: Wash Hands

We just used dish-soap and water, the paint came off pretty easily.

Step 6: Add the Hair

You can add the hair with the child's fingers or a paint brush. I chose to use to her fingers to keep her involved.

Step 7: More Glitter!

This step the glitter is a little bit easier to add. I actually got to the paper before it all dried.

without letting my toddler paint the house purple :)

Step 8: Let Them Dry

The paint dried completely in about five minutes.

Step 9: Assemble the Hats

To create the hats, I drew on the black paper and then cut around it. For the middle part of the hat I cut 1 inch of the yellow paper then glued it to the cut out portion of the black paper.

Step 10: Add the Eyes and Hat

Step 11: Add the Broom, Stars, and Face

Step 12: Don't Forget the Name and Date

Step 13: 13. Enjoy a Glass of Wine in Silence (because That Was a Little Chaotic!)

Step 14: Give It to Your Most Favorite Person in the World! (Grandma, or Known As 'Honi')

Step 15: And Don't Forget Your Neighbor!
