I called upon the artistic skills of my husband, and now I have THE CUTEST Kissing Hand craft. Can you tell I'm excited? Anyway, I am a stickler for not wasting paper. Construction paper is expensive and I hate wasting trees (as can be seen when the kinders "rat out" their classmates for putting paper in the garbage). I also like when I can copy parts of the craft on construction paper, which saves me time. So, when I make my crafts, I put the pieces that are black on one sheet, the pieces that are pink on one sheet, etc. That is the way this craft is designed. Hooray!
I wanted a way to stamp the kinder's hand to see how teeny tiny they are when they first come to school. I also wanted to add a heart that stands for the kiss and love from home. Just in case that proved to be too much for me to handle, I wanted a couple of back-up options. Surprisingly, I was able to stamp twenty-four hands very quickly using the stamp, baby wipe, "Go back to your seat" method. Everything ran very smoothly, and I was SO happy with the results. They even cut most of the pieces on their own!
