As the teacher of babies this year, my teaching partner and I really wanted to find a Thanksgiving craft that was different. We threw around the idea of a centerpiece using pumpkins, branches and pictures but after a shopping trip to both Michael's and Hobby Lobby we couldn't come up with anything that would work or was budget friendly.
A trip down Pinterest lane and my partner found this great Recycled Pilgrim Ship craft by 4 Crazy Kings that I immediately fell in love with. The best part...it was completely FREE! Yup, I used that four letter word!
Since we are talking about such young babies, a drawn picture was out of the question so off to the supply room for paint. What mommy and daddy doesn't just fall in love with their baby's hand print, right?
Our parents were overjoyed to have such a wonderful keepsake from their sweet little one. For us, we were patting ourselves on the back for a job well done because anyone who has ever worked with young babies knows how hard getting a hand print can be...LOL!
What a fun craft. Now it's time to start thinking about Christmas.
