Handprint-Footprint Christmas Craft for Kids

Here is my Little Helper demonstrating the Rudolph Puzzle Pin. This is easy peasy! Everybody has those little puzzle pieces laying around...paint them brown, put three together(1 head, 2 antlers) glue on 2 eyes, and a red nose(this Meme can't find her red pompoms today! a real big duh!- so we make do with red sequins),glue on a pin backing...ta-da!

He made 2 pins.....and his Mama WILL wear one to work!

Here is his Christmas Tree-made with 10 of his hand prints! We used 4 on the bottom, then 3, then 2, then 1 at the top! He used his fingerprints to make a popcorn and cranberry garland trim...3 white popcorns, 1 red cranberry ( tried to follow the pattern, he did pretty darn good for a 5 year old Santa's Helper!) ornaments with thumbprints! Yay! Purty! I mean...Handsome!

How about this angel?? Make 2 handprints...1 on each side, for angel wings. Then make a footprint, with toes at the bottom! Uhhh, you might notice that Meme forgot to make the head pink or,remember..that step is use something round to stamp out a head for your angel! Maybe cut a small potato in half to use as a stamp?
He used his finger tips to make eyes and a paintbrush handle to make a heart shaped mouth, a few pompoms for hair :D
