Are you looking for parent gift ideas? These family gifts can be for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and more! I want our gifts to be sentimental so they always involve handprints!
Parent Gift Ideas: Handprint Plates
One of our favorite gifts are handprint plates!
To make these plates we use $1 plates from the Dollar Tree! We use acrylic craft paint to make the handprints. The names and year are written with a Sharpie. Then bake the plates for a few minutes in the oven at 200 degrees to bake the paint on. Finally, spray with a clear acrylic spray paint to seal. (Note: send a note with these that they are for decoration and not for use with food!)
Another handprint ideas is handprint tiles! We use the same procedure as the plates but with ceramic tiles. The tiles are from Home Depot!
Parent Gift Ideas-Rainbow Tiles
This idea can be done on ceramic tile or on canvas.
Take pictures of the kids in various poses. Print the images in black and white. Cut out the pictures.
Students use bingo daubers and make dots on the tile. Allow to tile. Glue on the pictures and have students write their names with a Sharpie. Finally cover the entire thing with Modge Podge!
Parent Gifts: Handprint Keychains
These keychains are actually Shrinky Dinks. Students use acrylic paint to make their handprint on shrinky dink paper. When baked in the oven the shrink up and get very hard. Add a key chain ring and the families has their child’s hand on their keys!
