Caleb's Handprint

Remember a month ago, when I did that handprint canvas with Nathan?

Well, after Nathan finished his own canvas, I had him paint another one green for Caleb. We were supposed to get Caleb's hand painted and printed that night when Andrew got home but it didn't happen.

Now, a month later, I finally decided we had put it off long enough.

I brought out the canvas and the paints and had Andrew hold Caleb while I painted his pudgy little hand.

Caleb loved squeezing the paintbrush which really helped to spread the white paint all over his hands, but we had a really hard time getting him to unclench his fist afterward.

I had to wait for him to open his hand and once he did that, I smushed it down right away, resulting in a less-than-perfect print, but it's done!


  1. that is a great keepsake, and I think the clenched fist adds some character to it!

  2. Adorable!
    I did something similar with my son with paint and paper and framed it in a shadowbox.
    But I love the canvas idea :)
