Prepared to be amazed at how quick and easy this craft is to complete. Paint the palm of your child’s hand with the green tempera paint. Press the hand onto the cardstock to make the most wondrous handprint. Allow it to dry completely. After it’s dry, cut out around it and laminate it. Break out the glue, sequins and glitter. Take a deep breath then let your child decorate the tree. Clean up all the glitter while it dries. Don’t worry, you will be cleaning up glitter for months after this craft. You can thank me every time you clean up some you missed. 😉

After it’s all dry, punch a small hole in the top of the middle finger. Thread the ribbon through and tie a knot in it. Make sure it’s completely dry before you do this part or glitter and sequins will fly everywhere. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
