All About Me

This is such a fun activity to do with the little ones and a great keepsake! 
I downloaded this All About Me book pattern from here. I suggest laminating 
this as it will last forever. I think its adorable and Milana enjoyed making this.

Fall Handprint Trees

Today the girls made Fall Handprint Trees. I Traced their hand and arms all the way up to almost their elbows and then I cut that out and used it for the tree and branches. Milana and Holly made fingerprint leaves, they just love painting with their fingers. Another great way to make the leaves would be to paint their hands and do handprint leaves.
