toddler school | first day craft

With toddler school officially underway, I found some pin-spiration for a First Day craft.

Yep, I’m totally one of those sentimental moms who love a good hand/footprint craft.  With my Kindergartners I found any excuse I could to send home a handprint card, so I really wouldn’t expect any less of myself to document the growth of my own children in any other way.

Copeland loves when I paint his hands.  He sits so patiently with wide-eyed wonder as I color his hand with the cool wet paint.  Not once has he gotten it on his clothes, but I of course recommend de-clothing your children and using washable paint…just in case.  Also, paint only one hand at a time and baby wipes are the BEST at removing paint from little hands.

His sweet handprints are now adorning our refrigerator.  The first of many, I am sure.

We only have one week behind us in Toddler School, and I can already tell the sweet memories we are making together will last a lifetime.  Having the one-on-one time together has been good for both of our hearts.

Here is my boy on his first day of our homeschool/preschool.

Copeland’s First Day!

Son, I pray that you always know how cherished and loved you are.  I praise God that I was chosen to be your Momma.
