This project was one of the first things I ever"pinned." (Found here.) I gathered my children, washable green craft paint, and an extra canvas I had. My 6 year-old's handprints are on the bottom, my 3 year-old's are in the middle, and my 1 year-old's are on top. (The quicker the process the better for a 15 month-old!)
Then I added a star and tree trunk with markers. I also painted a red "garland" on the tree using q-tips. And I painted on a red boarder/frame for a more "finished" look.
I also added the date in the corner.
I temporarily took down one of the pictures in the loft and hung our new Christmas picture in it's place.
I love my new Christmas keepsake!
