End of the Year Handprints

I love making handprint crafts with my students.  Here are a few ways I've made handprint crafts for the end of the year for each of my students to keep.  

We made handprint t-shirts.  I had students put their handprints all around and my assistant and I put ours on too!  When the paint dried, we wrote each student's name on top of their handprint.  I used fabric paint for the handprints, fabric markers for the names, and puffy paint for the year.

We made the tote bags the same way.  I ordered a variety of different colors of the tote bags on Amazon and let students pick the color they wanted for their tote bags.  They also were able to choose the color puffy paint and handprint paint they used.

I hope you enjoy these ideas and are able to use them with your students.  :)

Sugar Baby Scrub {with Free Printable}

Sugar Baby Scrub

This is a simple DIY recipe that your students can make for Mothers Day...it's so good that you'll want to make some for yourself too!!  

Here's what you'll need:

-Baby Oil
-Baby Lotion or Baby Wash


-Mix 2 1/2 cups of sugar (granulated, any brand), 1/4 cup baby oil, and 1/4 cup baby lotion (or baby wash) together in a bowl.  I prefer baby lotion because of the added moisture/softness that it gives to your skin.  When you're done mixing, scoop it into a jar, tie a ribbon around and add your tag...voila!  

I love that it's so simple and provides your students with the opportunity to measure and mix...you can also let them touch it, which provides a bonus sensory opportunity!
